A Systematic Approach To Video Quality Assessment And Bitrate Planning (2015)

By Sean T. McCarthy, Ph.D. ARRIS

We present a streamlined method of setting operational video quality and bandwidth using either subjective or objective testing, using individual golden-eyes or focus groups of any size. A key feature of the method we present is it provides a means of validating test content to ensure that it is representative of actual programing. Another key feature is that this method enables bandwidth planning based on both average video quality and the probability that hard-to-compress content will fall below a predetermined just-acceptable video quality threshold. The data and analysis we present are intended to aid in planning video quality and bandwidth resources across a range of service offerings from OTT through Ultra HD.
