—Quality of Experience (QoE) in multimedia applications is closely linked to the end users' perception and therefore its assessment requires subjective user studies in order to evaluate the degree of delight or annoyance as experienced by the users. QoE crowdtesting refers to QoE assessment using crowdsourcing, where anonymous test subjects conduct(More)
Research on Quality of Experience (QoE) heavily relies on subjective evaluations of media. An important aspect of QoE concerns modeling and quantifying the subjective notions of 'beauty' (aesthetic appeal) and 'something well-known' (content recognizability), which are both subject to cultural and social effects. Crowdsourcing, which allows employing people(More)
This contribution presents a no-reference video quality metric, which is based on a set of simple rules that assigns a given video to one of four different content classes. The four content classes distinguish between video sequences which are coded with a very low data rate, which are sensitive to blocking effects, which are sensitive to blurring, and a(More)
A no-reference video quality metric for High-Definition video is introduced. This metric evaluates a set of simple features such as blocking or blurring, and combines those features into one parameter representing visual quality. While only comparably few base feature measurements are used, additional parameters are gained by evaluating changes for these(More)
No-reference video quality metrics are becoming ever more popular, as they are more useful in real-life applications compared to full-reference metrics. Many proposed metrics extract features related to human perception from the individual video frames. Hence the video sequences have to be decoded first, before the metrics can be applied. In order to avoid(More)
