Waterloo IVC 4K Video Quality Database

Zhuoran Li, Zhengfang Duanmu, Wentao Liu and Zhou Wang

Introduction

The Waterloo IVC 4K Video Quality database is created from 20 pristine 4K (Resolution: 3840x2160) Videos, all collected from Youtube creative commons videos. Each source video is encoded by five encoders: HEVC, H264, VP9, AV1 and AVS2. Each source video is encoded into three resolutions: 960x540, 1920x1080, 3840x2160. Each setting has four distortion levels, where the encoder control parameters were decided to ensure a good perceptual separation. Altogether, there are totally 1200 encoded videos.

We are making the Waterloo-IVC 4K Video Quality database available to the research community free of charge. If you use this database in your research, we kindly ask that you reference our papers listed below:
