A New Subjective Audiovisual & Video Quality Testing Recommendation

Margaret H. Pinson; Lucjan Janowski

Abstract: This paper introduces ITU-T Recommendation P.913, a new subjective video quality testing standard approved in January 2014. This Recommendation focuses on the evaluation of flat screens, laptops, and mobile devices. P.913 emphasizes flexibility of environment, rating scale, display technology, and stimulus modality (video, audio, or audiovisual). To balance this flexibility, P.913 includes mandatory reporting requirements.
