The emergence of UHD video format induces larger screens and involves a wider stimulated visual angle. Therefore, its effect on visual attention can be questioned since it can impact quality assessment, metrics but also the whole chain of video processing and creation. Moreover, changes in visual attention from different viewing conditions challenge visual attention models. In this paper, we present a new HD and UHD video eye tracking dataset composed of 37 high quality videos observed by more than 35 naive observers. This dataset can be used to compare viewing behavior and visual saliency in HD and UHD, as well as for any study on dynamic visual attention in videos.
