LIVE 3D Image Quality Database - Phase I
Stereoscopic/3D Image and Video Quality Assessment (IQA/VQA) has become increasing relevant in today's world, owing to the amount of attention that has recently been focused on 3D/stereoscopic cinema, television, gaming, and mobile video. Understanding the quality of experience of human viewers as they watch 3D videos is a complex and multi-disciplinary problem. Important tools in the study of the quality of 3D visual signals are databases of 3D image and video sets, distorted versions of these signals and the results of large-scale studies of human opinions of their quality. We provide one such tool - the LIVE 3D IQA database, which is the first publicly available 3D IQA database. It also incorporates `true' depth and disparity information of all reference signals along with stereoscopic pairs and human opinion scores. We hope that it would be valuable to the image and video processing research community and supplement the LIVE Image/Video Quality Databases and advance the state-of-the-art in objective 3D image quality assessment.
We are making the 3D Image Quality Database available to the research community free of charge. If you use this database in your research, we kindly ask that you reference our paper listed below:

The 3D IQA database consists of 20 reference images and 365 distorted images (80 each for JP2K, JPEG, WN and FF; 45 for Blur) with co-registered human scores in the form of DMOS. All distortions are symmetric in nature. Apart from human opinion scores for every distorted image, the database also provides researchers access with `true' depth and disparity information of every reference image obtained from a range scanner, which all of the above databases lack. The image and range data used in this study were collected using an advanced terrestrial range scanner, the RIEGL VZ-400, with a co-registered 12.1 megapixel Nikon D700 digital camera mounted on top of it.
Quality Assessment research at LIVE is being conducted in collaboration with the Video Aware Wireless Networks ( VAWN ) program of the Intel & Cisco.
