This database contains 9 contents with for each content, the reference (without processing or degradation) and 14 different HRCs. The HRCs are h264 and h264/SVC with simulated transmission errors. Several error concealments was tested using the h264/SVC capability. There is one spreadsheet with the individual score and the MOS for each video for the results of subjective test using ACR methodology. A text file presents the conditions in which the videos was evaluated.
The contents of this database are VGA (640x480) videos. The display mode is progressive and the frame rate is 60Hz.
The AVI videos are provided in the "Videos" directory. You can play the videos with a standard video player like VLC for example.
The subjective scores are provided. An Excel file is provided. In this file, a PVS (an AVI video) is associated to a line and an observer to a column. You have access to all individual vote from each observer to each AVI video. The last column is the Mean Opinion Score (MOS).
Hypothetical reference circuits (HRC)
The HRC are h264 and h264/SVC coded with the JSVM coder version 9.18. The AVC and SVC enhancement layer are coded at 600kb/s at 30Hz. The simulated transmission errors occured in the enhancement layer was concealed by several error concealment technics using the base layer information. In the first one, we patch the error slice by the value of the base layer upscaled pixels. In the second one, we switch to the upscaled base layer. Several coding scenarios were used to generate the base layer. There are 4 version of the base layer. The first one is coded at 120kb/s at 15Hz, the second one is coded at 120kb/s at 30Hz, the third one is coded at 200kb/s at 15Hz and the last one is coded at 200kb/s at 30Hz. The upscaled base layer was also evaluated.
