Summary:
Perceptual video coding has been a promising area during the last years. Increases in compression ratios have been reported by applying foveated video coding techniques where the region of interest (ROI) is selected by using a computational attention model. However, most of the approaches for perceptual video coding only use visual features ignoring the auditory component. In recent physiological studies, it has been demonstrated that auditory stimuli affects our visual perception. In this work, we validate some of those physiological tests using complex video sequence. We designed and developed a web-based tool for video quality measurement. After conducting different experiments, we observed that in the general reaction time to detect video artifacts was higher when video was presented with the audio information. We observed that emotional information in audio guide human attention to particular ROI. We also observed that sound frequency change spatial frequency perception in still images.
