Completed Joint Efforts
- Audiovisual Quality Integration (AVHD-AV) - completed in 2012 by concluding that "audio-only MOS × video-only MOS = audio-visual MOS"
- HDTV Phase II and Multimedia Phase II were merged to create Audiovisaul HD in December, 2012.
- 3DTV was closed March 2016, and the remaining 3DTV projects moved into the new Immersive Media Group.
- VLQA (Visually Lossless Quality Analysis) was closed November 2017.
- VIME (Video and Image Models for consumer content Evaluation) was closed November 2017 and replaced with the No Reference Metric (NORM) working group.
- MOAVI (Monitoring of Audio Visual Quality by Key Indicators) was closed January 2018. Work continues in the No Reference Metric (NORM) working group.
- QART (Quality Assessment for Recognition Tasks) was closed November 2017. Work continues in the new No Reference Metric Group.
- Ultra HD was closed March 2018. Work continues in other VQEG working groups, since 4K monitors are widely available.
- HDR/WCG (High Dynamic Range Video / Wide Color Gamut) was closed March 2018. Work continues in other VQEG working groups.
- Independent Lab Group (ILG) - the ILG was closed due to the lack of need for independent oversight of VQEG validation efforts
- PsyPhyQA (Psycho-Physiological Quality Assessment) was suspended December 2022, until interest on this topic resumes.
