As is well known, image quality is dependent on sharpness, tone scale reproduction, graininess and color reproduction characteristics of the observed image.

Over the last 50 years many quality criteria have been proposed and used for image evaluation. However, image quality is also dependent on the scene content, particularly in subjective evaluations. It is reported that eye movements provide useful information in the analysis of subjective evaluations. Hence, in this paper the relationship between gazing areas and image quality is analyzed in terms of eye movements.

We measured the eye movements of six observers during the viewing of seven kinds of images on a CRT. The gazing areas are the most important regions of the image for the observers, therefore its information can be applied to the development of improved data compression and transmission algorithms and systems.

The purpose of this paper is to discuss and clarify the relationships between gazing areas and both subjective and objective image quality evaluations.

More about this publication?
  • CIC is the premier annual technical gathering for scientists, technologists, and engineers working in the areas of color science and systems, and their application to color imaging. Participants represent disciplines ranging from psychophysics, optical physics, image processing, color science to graphic arts, systems engineering, and hardware and software development. While a broad mix of professional interests is the hallmark of these conferences, the focus is color. CICs traditionally offer two days of short courses followed by three days of technical sessions that include three keynotes, an evening lecture, a vibrant interactive (poster) papers session, and workshops. An endearing symbol of the meeting is the Cactus Award, given each year to the author(s) of the best interactive paper; there are also Best Paper and Best Student Paper awards.
