Evaluating visual quality and video MOS based on subjective perception

December 21, 2016 | by Jens Berger

How do you measure video quality as perceived by end users? The video’s actual visual quality is only one of many factors determining customer satisfaction with the service; other determiners include the service’s structure and the user’s experience and expectations. For real field video quality measurements, reference measurements are necessary.
