We develop a no-reference binocular image quality assessment model that operates on static stereoscopic images. The model deploys 2D and 3D features extracted from stereopairs to assess the perceptual quality they present when viewed stereoscopically. Both symmetric- and asymmetric-distorted stereopairs are handled by accounting for binocular rivalry using a classic linear rivalry model. The NSS features are used to train a support vector machine model to predict the quality of a tested stereopair. The model is tested on the LIVE 3D Image Quality Database, which includes both symmetric- and asymmetric-distorted stereoscopic 3D images. The experimental results show that our proposed model significantly outperforms the conventional 2D full-reference QA algorithms applied to stereopairs, as well as the 3D full-reference IQA algorithms on asymmetrically distorted stereopairs.
