Plasma display panel technology employs a pulse-number modulation method to generate the gradation of the display. However, this method can create a false contour distortion when moving pictures are reproduced. In this paper, we propose an effective subfield optimization technique which is based on measuring motion picture distortion. To this end, we propose two applications of the measurements. One is optimum selection of the codewords to improve performance, and the other is the application of rough sets theory to subfield optimization, which reduces computational CPU time. Simulation results show that dynamic false contouring can be effectively reduced by this optimization technique, and the complexity can be minimized, using rough sets theory.
