Este metodo de halftoning fue desarrollado por Knuth [8], tiene como objetivo conservar las buenas caracteristicas del metodo de difusion de error mientras que tambien ofrece un paralelismo sustancial.

In conventional halftoning, Parker explained, at the elemental level a 50% screen in a given square group of pixels would show a dark patch over half the pixels in the center of the square.
Another quality halftoning method, error diffusion (the concept for which dates from the mid-1970s), Parker said "produces a very nice pattern" but exists simply as an algorithm rather than a screen.
Error diffusion does have built-in sharpening that makes images more appealing, Parker conceded, adding that many consider it "just about the best halftoning technique" for laser-printed images.
At RCT, Baker said the halftoning software can indeed be plugged into midrange and high-end imagesetters and that he is talking to vendors of 2,500-dpi output devices.
