Audiovisual Quality Integration (AVHD-AV) Project

 Audiovisual Combining Function (finished)

The goal of this project is to compare different methods of combining an audio-only MOS and a video-only MOS to an audio-visual MOS. Several proposals have been presented in the past and were collected and validated by Margaret Pinson (NTIA/ITS) and one particular method seemed most suitable:

audio-only MOS × video-only MOS = audio-visual MOS

The results of that study were published in the following paper:

Margaret H. Pinson, William J. Ingram, and Arthur A. Webster, "Audiovisual Quality Components: An Analysis," IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, vol.28, no.6, pp.60-67, Nov. 2011. 

The original plan was to conduct a competitive benchmark, but at the moment this seems obsolete and the project is dormant.
