EuclidIQ has been developing an innovative compression technology called IQ264 that applies perceptual quality optimization (PQO) that integrates consideration of the HVS to improve standard H.264 encoding. Because IQ264 optimizes human perception, its gains are best measured through subjective testing. For this purpose, a subjective testing approach was needed that would produce meaningful results without being prohibitive in terms of time or cost.
The white paper presented here details the resulting subjective test methodology that provides a way to:
- Prove the benefits of the IQ264 PQO technology to current and potential customers; and
- Measure the overall compression benefit of IQ264 as the PQO technology is developed and productized.
The ideas in the white paper can be modified and tailored to specific application needs, resulting in alternative subjective test methodologies.
