Quantitative image quality analysis technologies have advanced significantly in the past twenty years. Practical instruments for objective analysis of engineering quality attributes are now used widely and successfully in the digital printing industry. However, in the design and optimization of an imaging system, measurement of engineering quality alone is not sufficient. It is equally if not more important to understand how image quality is perceived by the end user. Unfortunately, unlike engineering attributes, perceptual image quality is much more difficult to measure and quantify. Recognizing the technical challenges and the potential gain, we have initiated a study on the feasibility of instrumental analysis of perceptual image quality. Given the complexity of the problem, we submit that even incremental advances make a valuable contribution to the imaging community. In this paper, we discuss our methodology and our initial results on perceived noise, and present an assessment of the efficacy of our approach.

  • 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.
