Enhanced EP halftones with hexagonal dot packing
Abstract:Hexagonal dot packing offers advantages for electrophotographic (EP) printing over conventional dot placement on a square grid. These advantages derive from a reduced neighborhood with which each dot interacts. Hexagonal dot packing has exhibited better grayscale performance with small clusters. Multiple dot centers in each tile allow obtaining more gray levels for a particular screen frequency. As a limiting case of multiple dot centers in a tile, stochastic screening on hexagonal and square grids is examined using a commercially available printing system. A novel method for comparing halftone spatial frequency components for all gray levels is demonstrated.

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.
