With the wide-spread use of digital video, quality considerations have become essential, and industry demand for video quality measurement standards is rising. Various organizations are working on such standards. This paper reviews some of the existing standards documents, on-going work and future trends in this space.

Perceptual video quality assessment in H.264 video coding standard using objective modeling

This proposal provides a method of perceptual quality assessment in H.264 standard encoder using objective modeling and calculates the objective quality metric using subjective impairments; blockiness, blur and jerkiness compared to the existing bitrate only calculation defined in the ITU G 1070 model.

A review on Video Quality Assessment

Two Video Quality Assessment techniques namely: Subjective and Objective assessment are discussed and different VQA performance metrics used for objective assessment are analyzed.

The impact of quality of service parameters to the subjective and objective video quality assessment

It is shown that jitter is a much more destructive effect than other degradation types and quality of service parameters are mapped to subjective experience based on the interpolation functions.

Quality analysis of scalable video coding on unstable transmissions

The results show that the amount of instability is not as important as just the presence of instability, that video quality can be deteriorated due to instability and that temporal scalability usually produces videos with worse quality than spatial and quality scalabilities.

Objective video quality assessment for tracking moving objects from video sequences

A novel objective quality metric is proposed for tracking moving objects in video sequences that particularly considers the moving objects as visually important content and has better performance than existing objective metrics.

The first task undertaken by VQEG was to provide a validation of objective video quality measurement methods leading to recommendations in both the telecommunications and radiocommunication sectors of the International Telecommunications Union.

Enhancements to the opinion model for video-telephony applications

Different enhancements to the model are presented, allowing a much better approximation to the perceptual MOS values, knowing only the subjective movement content in the video application, classified in "Low", "Medium" or "High".

Methodology for the subjective assessment of the quality of television pictures

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.

F Mean Squared Error: Love It or Leave It?

This article hopes to inspire signal processing engineers to rethink whether the meansquared error is truly the criterion of choice in their own theories and applications, and whether it is time to look for alternatives.

Mean squared error: Love it or leave it? A new look at Signal Fidelity Measures

This article has reviewed the reasons why people want to love or leave the venerable (but perhaps hoary) MSE and reviewed emerging alternative signal fidelity measures and discussed their potential application to a wide variety of problems.
