Abstract

This paper considers the visual quality assessment for view synthesis in the context of 3D video delivery chain. It is targeted to perceptually quantify the reconstruction quality of synthesised camera viewpoints. It is needed for developing better QoE models related to 3D-TV, as well as for a better representation of the effect of depth maps on views synthesis quality. In this paper, existing 2D video quality assessment methods, like PSNR and SSIM, are extended to assess the perceived quality of synthesised viewpoints based on the depth range. The performance of the extended assessment techniques is measured by correlating multiple sample video assessment scores to that of the Video Quality Metric (VQM) scores, which are a robust reflector of real subjective opinions.
