Paper Abstract

This paper extends and modifies Classified Vector Quantization (CVQ) to solve the problem of inverse halftoning. The proposed process consists of two phases: the encoding phase and decoding phase. The encoding procedure needs a codebook for the encoder, while the decoding process requires another codebook for the decoder. The difference between an input vector and its corresponding codeword is included to reconstruct a gray-scale image. The experiments show that our algorithm is robust to the filter which is used to generate an error-diffused image. Compared with other available techniques, our approach has the better image quality. The main contribution of this paper is that it opens another area of application for VQ.
