Paper Abstract

The mechanism of stochastic screening and its apparent advantages and disadvantages over conventional halftoning have been frequently discussed. A commonly believed advantage of stochastic screening is that it is more stable on the press. To quantify this, an experiment was conducted to examine its print characteristics under some 27 different paper substrates. The test results indicate that the print characteristics of the stochastic screen exhibits less change than its conventional counterpart under a wide range of paper stocks.
