Abstract: Multiscale error diffusion (MED) digital halftoning technique outperforms classical conventional error diffusion techniques as it can produce a directional- hysteresis-free bi-level image. However, extremely large computation effort is required for its implementation. In this paper, a fast MED-based digital halftoning technique is proposed to produce a halftone image without directional hysteresis at a significantly reduced computational cost. The amount of reduction is monotonic increasing with the image size. For an image of size 512×512, the proposed algorithm can save 40% of arithmetic operations as compared with MED. Moreover, since it supports parallel processing, processing time can further be squeezed.
