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.
