— Objective image and video quality measures play important roles in a variety of image and video pro-and watermarking. Most proposed quality assessment approaches in the literature are error sensitivity-based methods. In this paper, we follow a new philosophy in designing image and video quality metrics, which uses structural distortion as an estimate of(More)
Image and video coding is an optimization problem. A successful image and video coding algorithm delivers a good tradeoff between visual quality and other coding performance measures, such as compression, complexity, scalability, robustness, and security. In this paper, we follow two recent trends in image and video coding research. One is to incorporate(More)
Objective image/video quality measures play important roles in various image/video processing applications, such as compression, communication, printing, analysis, registration, restoration and enhancement. Most proposed quality assessment approaches in the literature are error sensitivity-based methods. In this paper, we follow a new philosophy in(More)
There has been an increasing need recently to develop objective quality measurement techniques that can predict perceived video quality automatically. This paper introduces two video quality assessment models. The first one requires the original video as a reference and is a structural distortion measurement based approach , which is different from(More)
Region of interest (ROI) image and video compression techniques have been widely used in visual communication applications in an effort to deliver good quality images and videos at limited bandwidths. Most image quality metrics have been developed for uniform resolution images. These metrics are not appropriate for the assessment of ROI coded images, where(More)
