Stochastic Screening


Stochastic screening, or frequency modulated (FM) screening, is a method of breaking down images into tiny dots of varying sizes to reproduce a printed image.

Unlike conventional halftone screening which uses equally spaced dots of varying size, stochastic screening uses dots of equal size but varying spacing.

This can result in sharper detail, smoother colour transitions, and reduced moiré patterns in the final print. However, it requires higher resolution printing equipment to achieve the best results.
