Evaluation and monitoring of video quality for UMA enabled video streaming systems
This paper1 deals with monitoring user perception of multimedia presentations in a Universal Multimedia Access (UMA) enabled system using objective no-reference (NR) metrics. These NR metrics are designed for an UMA-enabled system, in a novel architecture, for a multimedia viewer. The first metric measures block-edge impairments in a video frame at the receiver end, based on the observation that they occur in regions with low spatial activity. The second metric evaluates the quality of the reconstructed video frame in the event of packet loss. Here, the structure of the artifact is itself exploited for the evaluation. Both the metrics involve low computational complexity and are feasible for real-time monitoring of streaming video in a multimedia communication scenario. Further, in rate-adaptive streaming of video, these metrics could serve as feedback parameters to dynamically adapt the video rates based on network congestion.
