Title: Qualinet multimedia database enabling QoE evaluations and benchmarking

Short abstract:

The evaluation and benchmarking of QoE can be done only if database of proper multimedia content annotated with subjective ratings is available. One of the goals within the interests of the COST Action IC1003 QUALINET and its Working Group 4 (Databases and Validation) is to create such databases and take the steps to make them accessible to all researchers. In this talk we will give an overview of this effort, focusing on survey and description of currently available databases and explanation on how these databases can be used for QoE evaluations and benchmarking. Moreover, we will focus on the Qualinet Databases online tool as Qualinet's main resource for sharing of the datasets among Qualinet members and scientific community.
