The newest video coding standard H.264 allows providing video streaming for low bit and frame rates in acceptable quality in 3G wireless networks due to significant video compression gain while preserving the perceptual quality. This is specially suitable for video applications in 3G wireless networks. One of the most popular content types in 3G streaming is panorama (weather cams, traffic jams, city guides). The results for subjective perceptual quality evaluation of panorama sequences differ from other sequence types significantly. In this paper the difference of the panorama type is investigated and a prediction of a perceptual metric for panorama sequences based on different objective parameters is introduced.
