Paper Abstract

In this paper, a new edge enhanced error diffusion algorithm which is based on the Eschbach's algorithm is proposed. Thick edge artifacts with large edge enhancing factor as well as less edge enhancement effects for the bright or dark pixel values are observed in the previous algorithm. By analyzing the phenomena, a new improved algorithm is proposed by using the diffused error sum and input pixel value. An input pixel is classified into a normal- or edge-region pixel based on the error sum criteria. Then, a new error calculation is employed for the edge-region pixel, while conventional error calculation is used for the normal- region pixel. The proposed method requires only a few additional calculations, and provides edge enhanced binary output images. The edge is less influenced by the brightness offset and thick edge artifacts are reduces.
