Best Student Paper Award of the 2013 Image Quality and System Performance Conference


vignette best paper raluca VladRaluca Ioana VLAD, doctorante dans l'équipe AGPiG a obtenu un Best Student Award dans le cadre de la conférence IS&T/SPIE Electronic Imaging, qui a eu lieu à Burlingame (Californie, USA) en février 2013. Ce prix lui a été remis pour un article traitant de la qualité des images 3D.

In today's context, where 3D content is more abundant than ever and its acceptance by the public is probably definitive, there are many discussions on controlling and improving the 3D quality. But what does this notion represent precisely? How can it be formalized and standardized? How can it be correctly evaluated? A great number of studies have investigated these matters and many interesting approaches have been proposed. Despite this, no universal 3D quality model has been accepted so far that would allow a uniform across studies assessment of the overall quality of 3D content, as it is perceived by the human observers. In this paper, we are making a step forward in the development of a 3D quality model, by presenting the results of an exploratory study in which we started from the premise that the overall 3D perceived quality is a multidimensional concept that can be explained by the physical characteristics of the 3D content. We investigated the spontaneous impressions of the participants while watching varied 3D content, we analyzed the key notions that appeared in their discourse and identified correlations between their judgments and the characteristics of our database. The test proved to be rich in results. Among its conclusions, we consider of highest importance the fact that we could thus determine three different perceptual attributes - image quality, comfort and realism - that could constitute a first simplistic model for assessing the perceived 3D quality.
