IEEE BTS Webcast: Quality of experience models and methods for broadcasting
During the last decade, the evolution of the TV market has been terrific. Broadcasters have been facing news challenges to cope with an increasing demand of new services from the user's side. With the convergence of second-screen adoption and the abundance of real-time news consumption via social channels, the broadcast landscape underwent a major transformation. Viewers have begun to demand highly customized experiences that meet their individual needs. In short, the evolving wants and needs of the viewer seems to be in the future of broadcast television. In the next few years, it is likely that this will become even more evident, with more people demanding customized television experiences through user-generated content and the option of micro bundled packages. To keep up, broadcasters must stay current with the latest innovations to engage with their customers. To this end, there is a need to evaluate the level of enhancement of these experiences and to compare their functionalities and requirements so operators can properly design their networks and regulators can assess the services offered to the audience. This lecture will overview the state of the art on quality of experience (QoE) models and methods with focus on broadcasting applications. The concept of QoE will be introduced first. Methods for the QoE assessment based on ITU Recommendations for test methodologies will be presented. Models and metrics for QoE will be then detailed. Future trends and challenges ahead on QoE for broadcasting will be announced. The talk will be a tutorial session and the audience is expected to have basic knowledge on multimedia systems and signal processing (BsC students in their final year, MsC students and PhDs).
