A monochromatic binary printer model at the cluster level defined by the halftone frequencies is presented in this paper. The halftone process using a cluster halftone screen creates halftone structures with aligned clusters within halftone cells tiled to fill the image plane. Each halftone cell, or each tile, can be treated as a "primary color", which can be calibrated, or macroscopically measured, from a corresponding halftone pattern. The cluster-based printer model estimates the average color of a halftone pattern containing different halftone cells using a modified Neugebauer spectral (colorimetric) color mixing model incorporating the Yule-Nielsen effect. A method based on the proposed clusterbased printer model for quickly and accurately characterizing the complete tone reproduction curve (TRC) for multicenter halftone screens is also described with the experiment result.
