Error diffusion is excellent for reproducing grey-scale images to binary images. The output of conventional error diffusion produces correlated pattern. In this paper, a new error diffusion coefficient set is proposed to reduce correlated pattern and to enhance edge through frequency analysis of the error diffusion coefficients. The error diffusion coefficients of the previous line are designed to enhance the edge. The error diffusion coefficient of the previous pixel of the current pixel is selected to symmeterize the coefficient set. Because the proposed coefficient-set consists of 1 and 2, a few computations are required. As results of experiments, it is shown that the binary image using the proposed coefficients have better quality than conventional ones.
