This dataset contains 15 new 4K resolution ultra-high definition (UHD) video sequences (3840x2160) for catering the requirement of active UHD video quality assessment algorithms in coming years, as well as help to fully evaluate coding efficiency of latest HEVC (High Efficient Video Coding).


The size of all 15 sequences (3840x2160) is about 270GB, with both YUV 4:4:4 color sampling, 10 bits per sample and YUV 4:2:0 color sampling, 8 bits per sample formats. 10bit raw video file can be played by pyuv. Due to the huge amount of data, please be patient to download. All sequences can be downloaded from public server through the following link: Link:
