Filter Designs for Multiresolution Halftoning
Abstract:Halftoning is used to create the illusion of new colors when only a limited number of colors is available for rendering. Many techniques for color halftoning are based on techniques taken from monochrome halftoning, but modified so that the algorithm is applied to each color component separately. These techniques work well if the palette is separable, but for the case of arbitrary palettes, only error diffusion has been widely used or studied, especially in the context of rendering true-color images on color indexed display systems. We present an alternative algorithm for color halftoning whether the color palette is arbitrary or image dependent. A systematic way of developing suitable filters for this multiresolution halftoning technique is described.

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.
