Improved Color Error Diffusion
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2169-4451.2001.17.1.art00004_2  Published OnlineJanuary 2001

We present a novel error-diffusion technique for halftoning color-separated images. The method correlates the different ink planes in a pixelwise manner and minimizes the overlap of dots from different colors to optimize the color halftone with respect to graininess.It is a two-step error diffusion: in a first step it is determined how many ink drops should be placed at a particular pixel without specifying the color of these drops. In a second step the color of these ink drops is determined.
