Rough surfaces in translucent protective sheets are used in imaging
systems, such as displays, to decrease specular reflections of external
sources. However, they modify the quality of the images formed by
transmission. Using a geometric approximation, we have modeled the
behavior of rough surfaces in imaging systems. This model provides
an analytical expression for the modulation transfer function of rough
