    Databases of images or videos annotated with subjective ratings constitute essential ground truth for training, testing, and benchmarking algorithms for objective quality assessment. More than two dozen such databases are now available in the public domain; they are presented and analyzed in this paper. We propose several criteria for quantitative comparisons of source content, test conditions, an... View full abstract»

    This paper presents the result of a recent large-scale subjective study of image retargeting quality on a collection of images generated by several representative image retargeting methods. Owning to many approaches to image retargeting that have been developed, there is a need for a diverse independent public database of the retargeted images and the corresponding subjective scores to be freely a...

    Traditionally, audio quality and video quality are evaluated separately in subjective tests. Best practices within the quality assessment community were developed before many modern mobile audiovisual devices and services came into use, such as internet video, smart phones, tablets and connected televisions. These devices and services raise unique questions that require jointly evaluating both the... View full abstract»

    We introduce a new video quality database that models video distortions in heavily-trafficked wireless networks and that contains measurements of human subjective impressions of the quality of videos. The new LIVE Mobile Video Quality Assessment (VQA) database consists of 200 distorted videos created from 10 RAW HD reference videos, obtained using a RED ONE digital cinematographic camera. While th... View full abstract»

    Packet-layer models are designed to use only the information provided by packet headers for real-time and non-intrusive quality monitoring of networked video services. This paper proposes a content-adaptive packet-layer (CAPL) model for networked video quality assessment. Considering the fact that the quality degradation of a networked video significantly relies on the temporal as well as the spat... View full abstract»

    With the advances in understanding perceptual properties of the human visual system and constructing their computational models, efforts toward incorporating human perceptual mechanisms in video compression to achieve maximal perceptual quality have received great attention. This paper thoroughly reviews the recent advances of perceptual video compression mainly in terms of the three major compone... View full abstract»

  • Stereoscopic Depth Cues Outperform Monocular Ones on Autostereoscopic Display

    The aim of this study is two-fold; first, to compare how certain visual aids contribute in depth estimation tasks on a portable autostereoscopic display; and second, how these depth cues impact on perceived quality. These were studied on a quantitative subjective study using a portable autostereoscopic display in controlled laboratory environment. Test participants evaluated object depths on three...

  • Evaluating Depth Perception of 3D Stereoscopic Videos

    3D video quality of experience (QoE) is a multidimensional problem; many factors contribute to the global rating like image quality, depth perception and visual discomfort. Due to this multidimensionality, it is proposed in this paper, that as a complement to assessing the quality degradation due to coding or transmission, the appropriateness of the non-distorted signal should be addressed. One im... View full abstract»

  • Analyzing Speech Quality Perception Using Electroencephalography

    Common speech quality evaluation methods rely on self-reported opinions after perceiving test stimuli. Whereas these methods-when carefully applied-provide valid and reliable quality indices, they provide little insight into the processes underlying perception and judgment. In this paper, we analyze the performance of electroencephalography (EEG) for indicating different types of degradations in s... View full abstract»
