Visual quality assessment for stereoscopic video sequences

Sarıkan, Selim Sefa
The aim of this study is to understand the effect of different depth levels on the overall 3D quality and develop an objective video quality metric for stereoscopic video sequences. Proposed method is designed to be used in video coding stages to improve overall 3D video quality. This study includes both objective and subjective evaluation. Test sequences with different coding schemes are used. Computer simulation results show that overall quality has a strong correlation with the quality of the background, where disparity is smaller relative to the foreground. This correlation indicates that background layer is more prone to coding errors. The results also showed that content type is an important factor in determining the visual quality.
