Objective technical quality assessment of stereoscopic movies is crucial for timely detection and correction of potentially problematic scenes in order to decrease the fraction of viewers who might experience visual discomfort. Despite the prior advancements in the field, some recently
released movies still contain scenes with significant technical issues. For instance, the movie Mermaid, which grossed over $500 million in box office, contains both artifacts common for natively captured S3D content and artifacts specific to 2D-to-3D conversion. In addition to previously
described technical quality metrics this paper introduces our improved approach to measuring sharpness mismatch between stereoscopic views, as well as a detailed analysis of 10 recently released Chinese S3D movies using 7 different quality metrics. The analyzed 10 movies are compared with
general stereoscopic movie quality trends evaluated on over hundred S3D movies, produced mostly in Europe and USA.

For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.
Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
