Class Information
Number: 358/3.13
Name: Facsimile and static presentation processing > Static presentation processing (e.g., processing data for printer, etc.) > Attribute control > Multi-level image reproduction (e.g., gray level reproduction) > Halftoning (e.g., a pattern of print elements used to represent a gray level) > Dithering (e.g., spatial distribution of print elements by threshold matrix)
Description: Subject matter wherein the pattern or distribution of print elements forming a halftone pattern is determined by comparing a discrete density value (gray level) to an array of threshold values.
