VQEG: Shaping Standards on Video Quality

Quan Huynh-Thu; Arthur A. Webster; Kjell Brunnström; Margaret H. Pinson

Abstract: The Video Quality Experts Group (VQEG) is an international and independent organisation of technical experts in perceptual video quality assessment from industry, academia, and government organisations. The main goals of VQEG are to advance the field of perceptual video quality assessment, establish best practices for subjective experiments, conduct large-scale subjective experiments, and evaluate new objective video quality assessment models. VQEG pursues several objectives and one of them is to support standardisation work. Based on results produced by VQEG, more than twenty-five international Recommendations on video quality have been approved by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). This paper provides an overview of VQEG activities and how VQEG plays a major role in research and the development of standards on video quality.
