Digital Video Quality: Vision Models and Metrics .
Digital video quality; vision models and metrics.
John Wiley & Sons
When compressed for transmission, digital images and video exhibit distortions that compromise their quality. This text explains how the limitations of the human visual system (HVS) may be exploited to maximize the quality of the output of digital imaging systems. Winkler begins with an overview of how visual information is processed in the brain. He then presents a tool for the evaluation of video quality that is based upon a model of the HVS. Winkler is Chief Scientist at Genista Corporation, a company developing perceptual quality metrics for multimedia applications. The text is based upon his doctoral dissertation.
