This database contains 168 videos sequences, the subjective results and auxiliary data such as the transmitted video files. 9 different video source contents were used. For each content, the reference (without degradation) and 15 different degradations called Hypothetical Reference Circuits (HRCs) were subjectively evaluated. The HRCs are based on H.264 and MPEG2 coding with and without transmission errors. We provide a spreadsheet with the individual scores and the Mean Opinion Score (MOS) for each of the 168 Processed Video Sequences (PVS).
The PVS (avi videos) and the bitstreams (H.264 and MPEG2 files) are available for download free of charge on the Consumer Digital Video Library (www.cdvl.org) due to copyright restrictions of the source content. They can be identified as being part of the VQEG HDTV dataset 2 (vqeghd2). In order to access them, use the CDVL search function with : “Subjective Experiment vqeghd2” and select “Match all”.
