A New No-reference Assessment Metric of Blocking Artifacts Based on HVS Masking Effect
2nd International Congress on Image and Signal Processing, 2009-10-17 ~ 2009-10-19, pp 3042-3047, 2009
In this article, a new algorithm-NABBHM based on HVS masking effect to assess blocking artifacts without reference is presented. We consider the brightness and complexity masking effect through defining two factors of masking to revise the original blocking artifacts value to make it more consistent with the human visual. Experiments show that NABBHM has strong feasibility and is highly fitting the subjective assessment value.
