A Testbed for Subjective Evaluation of Omnidirectional Visual Content

Omnidirectional visual content is a form of representing graphical and cinematic media content which provides subjects with the ability to freely change the direction of view. Along with virtual reality, omnidirectional imaging is becoming a very important type of the modern media content. This brings new challenges to the omnidirectional visual content processing, especially in the field of compression and quality evaluation. More specifically, the ability to assess quality of omnidirectional images in reliable manner is a crucial step to provide high level quality of immersive experience. In this paper we introduce a testbed suitable for subjective evaluations of omnidirectional visual contents. We also show the results of a conducted pilot experiment to illustrate the applicability of the proposed testbed.
