Paper Abstract

In this paper, a perceptual blocking distortion metric for block-based transform coded digital video is proposed. The metric is based on a spatio-temporal multichannel vision model to calculate the Just Noticeable Distortion (JND) map. The blocking dominant regions are segmented after the spatio-temporal decomposition and the JNDs in these regions are summed up to form an objective measure of the blocking artifact. Subjective and objective tests have been conducted and the results show a strong correlation between the objective blocking rating and the mean opinion score.
