Paper Abstract

In this paper, we examine the subjective and the objective performance of MPEG-2 for HDTV. Tests were conducted on seven HDTV sequences selected to cover a wide range of conditions in terms of scene content, complexity and motion speed and direction. The selected material was digitized in 4:2:2 format with HDTV resolution and coded using MPEG-2 Man Profile/High Level syntax. Formal subjective assessment was performed by non-expert viewers on the sequences coded at a bit rate of 18 Mbits/s. Since MPEG-2 allows a great flexibility at the encoding end, we also examined the impact of various MPEG-2 encoding parameters on the quality of the reconstructed HDTV video sequences. The parameters include bit rate, the structure of picture organization, as well as temporal processing.
