Direct Tonal Evaluation for the Digital Photo-Imaging System
In the traditional silver halide photography, so called analog photography, the tonal characteristics of the system is evaluated by tone reproduction curve of the Camera-Through Sensitometory (CTS) technique. In the traditional system, the tonal quality of photo-image depends mainly on the medium and its developing process. Although the contribution of camera is not important factor to that quality.
In the current electronic digital photography, the tone characteristics will be evaluated by similar method to the CTS, however the image processing function of the digital steel camera (CTS) induces the remarkable effect to that quality. Thus the tonal characteristics will be affected by DSC itself. The signal career of photo image in the digital system is the image data to be more definite, detectable and electronically controllable than that in the analog system.
This paper discusses the electronic direct evaluating method for the tone reproduction of digital photo-imaging system.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
