Quality of Experience in 3D Multimedia

Antoine Lavignotte, Christophe Gravier, Julien Subercaze, Jacques Fayolle


Quality of Experience (QoE) is a key element in the search for rapid growth of three-dimensional video technology. Research concerning the study of QoE in a 3D environment is on the move. This paper proposes a review of 3D QoE specificities. We present the actual findings in this area as well as a national and international leading projects. Thus, any researcher wishing to know more about this domain will be able to start with the foundations necessary to understand the issues related to 3D.
