Class Information
Number: 382/252
Name: Image analysis > Image compression or coding > Quantization > Error diffusion or dispersion
Description: Subject matter in which any error in a given output image value that results from quantization is distributed among surrounding values so as to reduce the losses that accumulated errors would have on the output image as a whole.
