Paper Abstract

A new halftoning algorithm is proposed that incorporates the concept of delayed decision in error diffusion. This algorithm is similar to a recently proposed tree coding halftoner in that both examine at each pixel location a neighborhood of future (with respect to the scanning direction) pixels before deciding the value of the current output pixel. Because of the feedback in the error diffusion process, one can reduce the size of the 'look ahead' window compared to a typical tree-coding halftoner, resulting in a relatively low complexity. It is shown that this algorithm improves the quality of halftone images compared to those generated by traditional error diffusion.
