In stereoscopic displays different images are presented separately to the left and right eyes. This requirement may increase the bandwidth demand as well as increase the occurrence of visible compression-related artefacts. Here we report the results of a large-scale subjective assessment of high dynamic range (HDR) stereoscopic image compression. The ISO/IEC 29170-2 flicker paradigm was adapted for stereoscopic images and used to evaluate two VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) image…

Subjective assessment of display stream compression for stereoscopic imagery
TLDR
A 3D version of the ISO/IEC 29170‐2 flicker paradigm is developed and it is shown that artifacts were often less visible in 3D compared to 2D viewing, which has practical applications with respect to codec performance targets and algorithm development for 3D movie, animation, and virtual reality content.

85‐1: Visually Lossless Compression of High Dynamic Range Images: A Large‐Scale Evaluation
TLDR
Results of the first large-scale subjective assessment of HDR image compression are reported, which applied the ISO/IEC 29170-2 flicker paradigm to evaluate two state-of-the art VESA codecs at several compression levels.
Perceptual Tolerance to Stereoscopic 3D Image Distortion
TLDR
It is concluded that the presence of multiple realistic monocular depth cues drives normalization of perceived depth from binocular disparity, and these normalization processes are evident in both perception- and action-oriented tasks.
Study on distortion conspicuity in stereoscopically viewed 3D images
TLDR
Analysis of subjects' performance in locating local distortions in stereoscopically viewed images indicated that contrast and range variations are correlated with the conspicuity of some distortions, but not others.
75‐2: Invited Paper: Large Scale Subjective Evaluation of Display Stream Compression
TLDR
The first large-scale evaluation of DSC1.2 according to ISO/IEC 29170-2.2 is presented, which aims to assess whether the codec meets visually lossless criteria.
P‐31: A Statistical Paradigm for Assessment of Subjective Image Quality Results
TLDR
This procedure provides insightful metrics concerning the relative performance of two or more codecs that may aid in the perceptually-guided development and selection of novel codec technologies.
The Role of Monocular Regions in Stereoscopic Displays
TLDR
The basis of the present study was a prediction that the presence of texture within these regions would facilitate rather than retard stereoscopic processing, which follows from a hypothesis that stereoscopicprocessing is initially located at disparity discontinuities.
Da vinci stereopsis: Depth and subjective occluding contours from unpaired image points
The Limits of Human Stereopsis in Space and Time
TLDR
The results illustrate that the disparity variations that humans can see are very restricted compared with the corresponding luminance variations, and provide insight into the neural mechanisms underlying depth from disparity, such as why stimuli with long interocular delays can still yield clear depth percepts.
