There are two kinds of method that utilize the redundancy in kinoform domains for reducing the reconstruction errors of quantized kinoforms. One is the iterative-dummy area (IDA) method, which increases the kinoform size indirectly by the addition of a dummy area to the desired image. The other is the interlacing technique (IT), which increases the kinoform size directly by the interlacing of a number of subkinoforms whose sizes are the same as the desired image. We compare the error reduction of quantized kinoforms between these two methods. Simulation results show that reconstruction errors from the IT method can be reduced further and faster than those from the IDA method when the kinoform size is increased to larger than 4 × 4 times the size of the desired image.
