Considers the problem of reconstructing a continuous-tone (contone) image from its halftoned version, where the halftoning process is done by error diffusion. The authors present an iterative nonlinear decoding algorithm for halftone-to-contone conversion and show simulation results that compare the performance of the algorithm to that of conventional linear low-pass filtering. They find that the new technique results in subjectively superior reconstruction. As there is a natural relationship between error diffusion and ΣΔ modulation, the reconstruction algorithm can also be applied to the decoding problem for ΣΔ modulators
