A quality assessment protocol for Free-viewpoint video sequences synthesized from decompressed depth data
In this paper, the analysis of a subjective quality experiment consisting in assessing the quality of free-viewpoint video sequences generated from decompressed depth data is presented. In the absence of a dedicated subjective assessment protocol for the evaluation of such 3D systems, a subjective quality assessment methodology is proposed for the context of MVD compression. The proposed methodology includes the assessment of free-viewpoint video sequences generated from decompressed depth data and from view synthesis processes. The proposed methodology is meant to assess the performances of depth map compression and view synthesis algorithms.
