Three-dimensional television (3DTV) is often mentioned as a logical next step following high-definition television (HDTV). A high quality 3-D broadcast service is becoming increasingly feasible based on various recent technological developments combined with an enhanced understanding of 3-D perception and human factors issues surrounding 3DTV. In this paper, perceptually relevant issues, in particular stereoscopic image quality and visual comfort, in relation to 3DTV systems are reviewed. We… Expand
Multidimensional characterization of quality of experience of stereoscopic 3D TV. (Caractérisation multidimensionnelle de la qualité d'expérience en télévision de la TV3D stéréoscopique)
TLDR
The experiment results quantitatively reveal how perceived binocular depth, compression distortion, the cooperation between 3D representation formats and line interleaved display, and view asymmetries affect multidimensional QoE of S-3DTV. Expand
Quality Evaluation of Color Plus Depth Map-Based Stereoscopic Video
TLDR
The correlation between subjective and objective evaluation of color plus depth video and transmission over Internet protocol (IP) is investigated, and subjective results are used to determine more accurate objective quality assessment metrics for 3D color plus Depth video. Expand
Effect of Display Technology on the Crosstalk Perception in Stereoscopic Video Content
TLDR
Results show that the dynamic behavior of the displays has an impact on crosstalk perception and its influence on image quality when rendering dynamic image sequences on two types of stereoscopic displays. Expand
Comparison of 3D displays using objective metrics
Previously, we (Havig, Aleva, Reis, Moore, and McIntire, 2007) presented a taxonomy for the development of three-dimensional (3D) displays. We proposed three levels of metrics: objective (in whichExpand
Comparison of stereo video coding support in MPEG-4 MAC, H.264/AVC and H.264/SVC
TLDR
This paper presents a review of some of the most prominent methods for coding stereoscopic colour and depth video, and investigates their respective coding efficiencies, and proposes a new configuration for encoding colour and Depth stereoscopic video, based on the H.264/SVC video coding standard. Expand
Stereoscopic TV over IP
TLDR
The image quality of the rendered stereoscopic video over IP can be vastly improved by prioritizing the colour video packets ahead of depth video packets. Expand
Audiovisual spatial congruence, and applications to 3D sound and stereoscopic video
TLDR
As s-3D cinema aims at providing the spectator with a strong impression of being part of the movie (sense of presence), the impact of the spatial rendering quality of the soundtrack on the reported sense of presence is investigated. Expand
Quality-Driven Coding and Prioritization of 3D Video over Wireless Networks
TLDR
The proposed3D video distribution system exploits the different priority access classes to achieve high quality 3D video even with significant levels of packet loss, and high network loads. Expand
Visual comfort of binocular and 3D displays
Imperfections in binocular image pairs can cause serious viewing discomfort. For example, in stereo vision systems eye strain is caused by unintentional mismatches between the left and right eyeExpand
Effect of disparity and motion on visual comfort of stereoscopic images
TLDR
The results indicate that change in disparity magnitude over time might be more important in determining visual comfort than the absolute magnitude of the disparity per se, and suggest that rapid switches between crossed and uncrossed disparities might negatively affect visual comfort. Expand

Methodology for the subjective assessment of the quality of television pictures
TLDR
The ITU Radiocommunication Assembly, considering that there exists a considerable measure of agreement between the different laboratories about a number of aspects of the tests, recommends that the general methods of test, the grading scales and the viewing conditions for the assessment of picture quality, described in the following Annexes should be used for laboratory experiments and whenever possible for operational assessments.

Predicted and perceived quality of bit-reduced gray-scale still images
TLDR
It will be demonstrated in this chapter how a small image set of scenes can be selected for the purpose of discriminating between the predictions of instrumental quality measures, and the usefulness of quality measures can be ascertained from a small, well chosen set of images. Expand
Psychovisual aspects of viewing stereoscopic video sequences
In comparison to conventional displays, 3D stereoscopic displays convey additional information about the 3D structure of a scene by providing information that can be used to extract depth. In theExpand
Stereo image coding: a projection approach
TLDR
A new stereo image coding algorithm that is based on disparity compensation and subspace projection is described, and empirical results suggest that the SPT approach outperforms current stereo coding techniques. Expand
Compression and representation of 3-D images
TLDR
More general platform for the 3-D image representation is introduced, aiming to outgrow the framework of 3- D “image” communication and to open up a novel field of technology, which should be called the “spatial’ communication. Expand
Perceptual characterization of images degraded by blur and noise: model.
TLDR
A psychometric space in which the positions of the images are determined by objective measures on the images, and it is shown that the attributes and the quality thus estimated correlate well with the perceived attributes and quality. Expand
Cancellation of image crosstalk in time-sequential displays of stereoscopic video
TLDR
This paper presents a simple model for intensity leak, assesses model parameters for a time-sequential LCS/CRT system, and proposes a computationally efficient algorithm to eliminate crosstalk, believing that it can be successfully used today in various stereoscopic applications suffering from image crosStalk. Expand
Subjective evaluation of stereoscopic images: effects of camera parameters and display duration
TLDR
The results of both experiments provide support for the argument that stereoscopic camera toe-in should be avoided if possible and an effect of display duration on observers' judgements of naturalness and quality of stereoscopic images is indicated. Expand
The RaPID Perceptual Image Description Method (RaPID)
TLDR
The RaPID (rapid perceptual image description) method is described, and the results of a series of experiments on the attribute sharpness are conducted, to develop the main dimensions of image quality, but also to determine how they combine into overall image quality. Expand
Perceptual evaluation of JPEG-coded stereoscopic images
JPEG compression of the left and right components of a stereo image pair is a way to save valuable bandwidth when transmitting stereoscopic images. This paper presents results on the effects ofExpand
