Parameterized Printer Model for Rendered Gray Level Images
Abstract:Xerography consists of a number of complex individual processes which in concert define the image quality of the output print. This paper describes a model which bypasses the complex individual processes and attempts to empirically model the output by use of a few key parameters, motivated by physical insight. Building on a prior modeling approach, a model is defined to empirically fit the microscopic toner mass distribution of halftone patches to measured luminosity (L*) across the Tone Reproduction Curve. The simplified model proposed here accommodates the microscopic toner mass of the patch, the Yule-Nielsen effect on paper, and certain key luminosity measurements. Comparisons are made between the simulated and experimental L* values and the optimization procedure used to fit the parameters is described.

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.
