22 April 1996 Halftone-independent calibration of black-and-white printers
Author Affiliations +
Halftone calibration of a black and white printer is a known process that involves printing and measuring patches for many different halftone levels. It is a tedious process that has to be repeated for every halftone dot or algorithm to be used. A new calibration procedure is described that uses a halftone-independent characterization of the printer and a pixel overlap model to predict the tone response of any halftone algorithm. This enables all halftone dots and algorithms to be calibrated with only one set of printer measurements.
