Halftone images: Spatial resolution and tone reproduction

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

The halftone technique, which converts a continuous-tone picture into a binary image, is examined. A halftone screen function is used to specify configurations of binary image elements; their area determines the local average image irradiance and information about the spatial image irradiance variations is relfected in their boundaries. A halftone ring geometry is suggested to improve spatial image resolution. Experiments are reported to verify this prediction.
