Paper Abstract

Halftoning is a technique to display a continuous gray-tone image with a bilevel device. Conventionally, halftoning is done in the spatial domain. A new halftoning technique in the frequency domain is proposed. It chooses a best bilevel image to display the original continuous-tone image and minimize the mean square error between them with the weight coefficients based on the criterion of human vision in the frequency domain of the discrete cosine transform. The simulation results indicate that our algorithm shows better bilevel image visually without false contours.
