VQEG Tools and Subjective Labs Setup

The main goal of the VQEG Tools and Subjective Labs Setup support group is to provide the research community with a wide variety of software tools and guidance in order to facilitate video quality research.

VQEG Reports from Completed Validation Tests

VQEG has completed the following validation tests of objective video quality models. Each test involved a group of proponents who submitted models for evaluation. The independent lab group (ILG) implemented the test and ensured a fair and unbiased evaluation of models.

Where possible, the videos and individual subject ratings from these validation tests are made available on the Consumer Digital Video Library (CDVL,, for research and development purposes. Some VQEG datasets cannot be redistributed due to licensing restrictions on the source content.
