Recently, a fast error diffusion halftoning algorithm using look-up tables (LUT) was proposed to speed up the multiplication of error filter coefficients. In this letter, we propose another LUTbased error diffusion halftoning algorithm which is more flexible in terms of the size of the LUT that can be used and thus allows for a more optimal tradeoff between halftone quality, processing speed, hardware complexity and parallelizability. Furthermore, the aggregate error in the proposed algorithm can be computed with different bitdepths for the different errors. As an example, we present a variant of the Floyd-Steinberg error diffusion algorithm which consists of two 256K bytes LUTs and the calculation of the modified input requires 1 addition and 2 table look-up operations per pixel processed.

  • 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.
