Dialogic to Present Video Quality Prediction Workshop at IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia

Wednesday, November 30, 2011


Dialogic proposes an alternative, patent pending approach to predicting video quality by presenting the paper, Support Vector Regression-Based Video Quality Prediction.


Traditional methods for estimating video quality include models that simulate the Human Visual System (HVS), which enables the human eye and brain to process visual details. Unfortunately, not all HVS simulation models have been effective enough to yield valuable results, and those that are reliable have tended to be cost-prohibitive. This has led engineers in some cases – particularly where resources are limited - to look instead to methods such as G.1070-based video quality prediction, which can lead to inaccuracy.

Given this situation, the industry needs a method of estimating video quality that requires fewer computational resources, but still provides accurate approximations of video quality. A Support Vector Machine (SVM) supervised learning approach directly addresses this need. Instead of using extracted features as input to a model (as with HVS models), Dialogic proposes using the extracted features to build a quality measure with SVM supervised learning. In addition to being cost-effective, this patent pending approach can better approximate the National Telecommunications and Information Association (NTIA) Video Quality Metric (VQM) and subjective Mean Opinion Score (MOS) values as compared to G.1070-based video quality prediction.
