Evaluation of visual quality metrics

Ölgün, Ramazan Ferhat
The aim of this study is to work on the visual quality metrics that are widely accepted in literature, to evaluate them on different distortion types and to give a comparison of overall performances in terms of prediction accuracy, monotonicity, consistency and complexity. The algorithms behind the quality metrics in literature and parameters used for quality metric performance evaluations are studied. This thesis also includes the explanation of Human Visual System, classification of visual quality metrics and subjective quality assessment methods. Experimental results that show the correlation between objective scores and human perception are taken to compare the eight widely accepted visual quality metrics.
