Digital Video Quality: Vision Models and Metrics

Digital Video Quality presents a comprehensive introduction to vision modeling and video quality assessment. The rapid spread of digital imaging systems poses an important new challenge: optimizing their performance with respect to the capture, display, storage and transmission of visual information. This problem has prompted the intensified study of vision models and visual quality metrics in recent years. This book:Highlights the importance of perceptual aspects pertaining to quality by reviewing the anatomy and physiology of the human visual systemPresents detailed guidelines for the design of vision models and quality metrics for image processing applicationsEvaluates the prediction performance of quality metrics in the context of video compression and transmissionDescribes metric extensions with features such as image appeal attributes, segmentation support for specific artifacts and objects of interestÊPublished 2005
