Paper Abstract

A new technique for the displaying of continuous-tone color pictures on a bi-level, tri-primary display or a display with limited numbers of colors displayable has been investigated. The significance of this technique is that it can provide pleasing and realistic images on a standard, low-cost, RGB graphic display, which is in abundant use in the personal computer community. Specific hardware has been constructed to acquire images from a video camera and generate these images on several personal computer (PC) color graphic system monitors. The time to process the digitized 24-plane, RGB image into the dithered 3-plane, RGB image is less than one second. Images have been created for several potential applications including a semiconductor failure analysis expert system.
