Abstract

Quality prediction of virtual-views is important for free viewpoint video systems, and can be used as feedback to improve the performance of depth video coding and virtual-view rendering. In this paper, an efficient virtual-view peak signal to noise ratio (PSNR) prediction method is proposed. First, the effect of depth distortion on virtual-view quality is analyzed in detail, and a depth distortion tolerance (DDT) model that determines the DDT range is presented. Next, the DDT model is used to predict the virtual-view quality. Finally, a support vector machine (SVM) is utilized to train and obtain the virtual-view quality prediction model. Experimental results show that the Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient and root mean square error between the actual PSNR and the predicted PSNR by DDT model are 0.8750 and 0.6137 on average, and by the SVM prediction model are 0.9109 and 0.5831. The computational complexity of the SVM method is lower than the DDT model and the state-of-the-art methods.
