Paper Abstract

A Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) is defined for a digital binary printer to satisfy demands of MTF for an optical system. For many practical reasons, a Contrast Transfer Function (CTF) is found to be more useful. A binary image model is used to determine major dependencies of CTF from parameters of system (printer-paper) that produced image. A computerized system is described for measurements of the Subjective Quality Factory (SQF) of a digital printer. The SQF can be compared (cascaded) to other electro-optical systems serving as an image quality merit function, characterizing the ability of the whole system to reproduce and print images.
