Abstract [en]

 There is no doubt that printing has been one of the most important technological inventions for

human civilization. Books, magazines, news papers, and so on have been printed for different

purposes such as distributing knowledge, thoughts, and news and commercializing products.

Tone reproduction for images has been one of the challenging parts of the printing technology

because the printing devices are restricted to a few color inks, whereas the original image

may consist of millions of color tones. In this chapter, the basics of the tone reproduction

are introduced. We begin with a brief history of halftoning and a short introduction of digitalization.

It is followed by the description on visual acuity of human visual system and its

relationship with the screen resolution. Then the basic and general concepts of tone reproduction,

such as screen frequency, print resolution, screen angle and Moiré pattern, and dot gain

are described and illustrated. Dot gain is only briefl y described and illustrated in this chapter as

it is thoroughly discussed in Physical Evaluation of the Quality of Color Halftone . Finally,

technologies for color reproduction and color halftoning are discussed.
