metric based on three dimensional-discrete cosine transform (3D-DCT) for 3D
media. In the proposed metric, the factors affecting stereoscopic perception
are first combined to construct a three dimensional signal (called as 3D stack).
3D stack’s coefficients are calculated
in the 3D-DCT domain. Then, Comparisons between reference and distorted stereoscopic
images are made in terms of three important coefficients after perceptual weighting.
Finally, we get the objective assessment scores of the distorted stereoscopic
images. Experimental results show that the proposed metric outperforms relevant
existing metrics in respect to correlation with the subjective evaluation and
can predict the stereoscopic image quality well.]]>Akhter, R., Z.M. Parvez Sazzad, Y. Horita and J. Baltes,2010Brunnstrom, K., D. Hands, F. Speranza and A. Webster,2009Gorley, P. and N.
