Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio (PSNR) is widely used as a video quality metric or performance indicator. Some studies have indicated that it correlates poorly with subjective quality, whilst others have used it on the basis that it provides a good correlation with subjective data. Existing literature seems to provide conflicting evidence of the accuracy of PSNR as a video quality metric. Based on experimental results, we explain a scenario where PSNR provides a reliable indication of the variation… Expand
Investigating the PSNR calculation methods for video sequences with source and channel distortions
TLDR
Experimental results indicate that when there is not much difference between the quality (distortions) of individual frames, like the source coding distortion, the outcome of both methods is similar, but when there are a dominant distortion in some frames, such as channel errors, there is a significant difference in the two methods.

A Content-Adaptive Distortion–Quantization Model for H.264/AVC and its Applications
  • Ching-Yu Wu, P. Su
  • Mathematics, Computer Science

  • 2014
TLDR
A content-adaptive distortion-quantization model for H.264/AVC is proposed to predict the distortion level, which is defined as the difference between the original video frame and the decoded one in the sum of squared errors, and the targeted PSNR of each decoded frame can be achieved effectively by the proposed mechanism.

Video Quality Metric for Bit Rate Control via Joint Adjustment of Quantization and Frame Rate
TLDR
A quality metric is proposed that accounts for both encoding parameters (quantization and frame rate), and intrinsic video sequence characteristics (motion speed) and shows that for the purpose of video rate control, optimization using the classical PSNR does not match up to that of subjective quality data.
