New halftoning method using adaptive cell
Abstract:We developed a newhalftoning method, adaptive cell, which generates unstructured dots as by error diffusion method, but the produced binary image is less granular and more stable than that of error diffusion. The basic idea is covering the input image with cells which vary in size and shape depending on the input image data. Then appropriate number of pixels at the center of each cell are set on, to preserve the local average of the input image. The characteristics of the generated binary image shows that this method is suitable for high density electro photographic binary printers.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
