This database contains 300 videos sequences and the associated subjective results. 60 different video source contents were used. For each content, the reference (without degradation) and 4 take randomly in 20 different degradations called Hypothetical Reference Circuits (HRCs) were subjectively evaluated.


The contents of this database are VGA (640x480) videos. The display mode is progressive and the frame rate is 60Hz. We used Absolute Category Rating (ACR) as test methodology.
