We present an enhanced error diffusion halftoning algorithm for which the filter weights and the quantizer thresholds vary depending on input pixel value. The weights and thresholds are optimized based on a human visual system model. Based on an analysis of the edge behavior, a tone dependent threshold is designed to reduce edge effects and start-up delay. We also propose an error diffusion system with parallel scan that uses variable weight locations to reduce worms.
