QR-RLS algorithm for error diffusion of color images

This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' QR-RLS algorithm for error diffusion of color images ' Printing color images on color printers, and displaying them on computer monitors requires a significant reduction of physically distinct colors, which causes degradation in image quality. An efficient method to improve the display quality of a quantized image is error diffusion which works by distributing the previous quantization errors to neighboring pixels exploiting the eye's averaging of colors in the neighborhood of the point of interest. This creates the illusion of more colors. A new error diffusion method is presented in which the adaptive recursive least squares (RLS) algorithm is used rather than the deterministic approaches in literature. To improve the performance, a diagonal scan is used in processing the image.
