Full Reference Television Phase II (FRTV-II)
FRTV Phase II built upon the FR-TV Phase I experiment. FRTV Phase II examined Full References (FR) and No References (NR) objective video quality models that predict the quality of standard definition television (625-line and 525-line). Models were submitted in 2002 and VQEG's Final Report was approved August 25, 2003. All NR models were withdrawn. The ITU decided that the accuracy of four FR models was sufficient to justify standardization.
