In this paper we present a large-scale analysis of S3D-movie technical quality spanning a large portion of stereoscopic-cinema history. We evaluated 105 Blu-ray 3D releases, including titles like the 1954 classic Dial M for Murder, as well as contemporary stereoscopic productions like Life of Pi and The Great Gatsby. The analysis is based on objective quality metrics designed to detect specific types of artifacts, including swapped channels, inconsistencies between the stereoscopic views (color, sharpness and geometric as well as temporal asynchrony) and many others. The main challenges we had to overcome were the enormous amount of computational resources and disk space that such analyses require as well as algorithmic difficulties in developing some of the more advanced objective quality metrics. Our study clarifies the quality trends and problems of S3D movie production in general and provides a better understanding of how effectively quality control has been applied to particular movies compared with the overall trend.

  • 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.
