We present an objective image quality assessment technique which is based on the properties of the human visual system (HVS). It consists of two major components: an early vision model (multi-channel and designed specifically for complex natural images), and a visual attention model which indicates regions of interest in a scene through the use of importance maps. Visible errors are then weighted, depending on the perceptual importance of the region in which they occur. We show that this… Expand
