ATIS IIF Launches Stereoscopic 3DTV Quality Initiative

The Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions’ (ATIS) IPTV Interoperability Forum (IIF) has recently launched a new work program to address Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE) for Stereoscopic 3D IPTV.

Stereoscopic 3D is a rapidly developing area, but further data collection is necessary in order to best understand user perceptions of quality. To this end, the IIF will describe, analyze and recommend multiple quality-related metrics. Potential metrics include: depth maps and depth perception, loss of resolution caused by frame-compatible formats, video synchronization, 3D graphics and closed captioning, ghosting from left-right cross-talk, QoE issues such as 3D fatigue, and more.

Once the information gathering and analyses are complete, the IIF will produce specifications which address areas of applicable QoS and QoE.
