This database contains 96 still images and their associated subjective scores.
Three different multiview plus depth (MVD) sequences are considered in this database. The sequences are Book Arrival (1024x768, 16 cameras with 6.5cm spac-ing), Lovebird1 (1024x768, 12 cameras with 3.5 cm spacing) and Newspaper (1024x768, 9 cameras with 5 cm spacing). Seven DIBR algorithms processed the three sequences to generate, for each sequence, four new viewpoints.
These seven DIBR algorithms are labeled from A1 to A7. The test was conducted in an ITU conforming test environment. For the subjective assessments, the stimuli were displayed on a TVLogic LVM401W, and according to ITU-T BT.500. See the paper for more details.
From the generated views (96 video sequences in total), 96 still images are extracted. They are referred to as "key frames" in the papers above. However, the extraction is random : only one frame was selected out of each synthesized view viewpoint. The frame number is fixed for a given viewpoint. This database contains only the extracted still images and the video sequences will be available subsequently in a different database.
We used Absolute Category Rating (ACR) and pair comparison as test methodologies. A text file describes the exact conditions in which the videos were evaluated.
On the FTP server, we provide the images in the directory "Images". These videos are PNG files.
Frame number and point of view
|01||Book Arrival||Left point of view : frame 54 of the view 8
Right point of view : frame 60 of the view 10
Target center point of view : view 9
|02||Lovebird1||Left point of view : frame 104 of the view 4
Right point of view : frame 112 of the view 8
Target center point of view : view 7
|Left point of view : frame 136 of the view 4
Right point of view : frame 104 of the view 6
Target center point of view : view 5
The subjective scores of ACR and pair comparison subjective experiment are provided. An Excel file is provided for each of the methodologies.
In the ACR file, an image is associated to a line and an observer to a column. You have access to all individual vote from each observer to each image. The last column is the Mean Opinion Score (MOS).
In the pair comparison file, the first sheet, explain the data organization as follow :
- In the "Individual_PC_Scores" sheet, there are the results for each observer and each image. The observers see a pair only one time. The results in the matrix is "1" if the line algorithm is prefered to the column algorithm. "0" if the column algorithm is prefered to the line algorithm.
- In the "Sum_Matrix" sheet, the individual scores are sum across observers for each image. Higher the number is, higher the column algorithm is prefered to the line algorithm. You can see the sum of the values of pair comparison between the algorithms i and j and between j and i is always 43. There are 43 observers for this experiment and all observers see all pairs.
- In the "TM_Results" sheet, there are the results of Thurstone Mosteller analysis. These results were computed with the implementation of "The law of comparative judgment : Theory and implementation by R. E. Vasquez-Espinosa and Richard W. Conners" in Matlab
Hypothetical Reference Circuits (HRC)
The Processed Video Sequences (PVS) were created using the following Hypothetical Reference Circuits (HRC). You can find details of the algorithms in the associated publication.
From the left point of view of each source content, 2 images are generated using the algorithm of the table. The first one is the center point of view and the second one is the right point of view. From the right point of view, the center point of view is generated and the left one. For each algorithm and for each source content, there are 4 images. So, for each image content, there are 8 versions x 4 images = 32 images.
