Investigators at University of Surrey Detail Findings in Multimedia (Modeling user perception of 3D video based on ambient illumination context for enhanced user centric media access and consumption)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- Fresh data on Multimedia are presented in a new report. According to news reporting originating in Guildford, United Kingdom, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "For enjoying 3D video to its full extent, it is imperative that access and consumption of it is user centric, which in turn ensures improved 3D video perception. Several important factors including video characteristics, users' preferences, contexts prevailing in various usage environments, etc have influences on 3D video perception."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the University of Surrey, "Thus, to assist efficient provision of user centric media, user perception of 3D video should be modeled considering the factors affecting perception. Considering ambient illumination context to model 3D video perception is an interesting research topic, which has not been particularly investigated in literature. This context is taken into account while modeling video quality and depth perception of 3D video in this paper. For the video quality perception model: motion and structural feature characteristics of color texture sequences; and for the depth perception model: luminance contrast of color texture and depth intensity of depth map sequences of 3D video are used as primary content related factors in the paper."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Results derived using the video quality and depth perception models demonstrate that these models can efficiently predict user perception of 3D video considering the ambient illumination context in user centric media access and consumption environments."
