ITS4S4: A Video Quality Study of Camera Pans

Margaret H. Pinson; Samuel Elting

Abstract: This technical memorandum provides technical details for the video quality subjective experiment its4s4. This experiment includes 196 videos, each 4 seconds in duration, depicting camera pans at different speeds. Other impairments are avoided where possible. This experiment implements an unrepeated scene design, so each 4 second video contains unique content. The its4s4 dataset provides training data for no-reference video quality metrics that predict quality impairments associated with camera pan speed. The dataset is freely available for research and development purposes.

Keywords: video quality; subjective testing; public safety; no reference (NR) metric; camera pan
