The TUM High Definition Video Data Sets


The research on video quality metrics depends on the results from subjective testing for both the design and development of metrics, but also for their verification. As it is often too cumbersome to conduct subjective tests, freely available data sets that include both mean opinion scores and the distorted videos are becoming ever more important. While many datasets are already widely available, the majority of these data sets focus on smaller resolutions. We therefore present in this contribution the TUM high definition datasets that include videos in both 1080p25 and 1080p50, encoded with different coding technologies and settings, H.264/AVC and Dirac, but also different presentation devices from reference monitors to home-cinema projectors. Additionally a soundtrack is provided for the home-cinema scenario. The datasets are made freely available for download under a creative commons license.
