Recommendation ITU-T J.341 provides an objective perceptual video quality measurement method for HDTV when a full reference signal is available. The following list shows example applications that can use this Recommendation:

1)         Potentially real-time, in-service quality monitoring at the source.

2)         Remote destination quality monitoring when a copy of the source is available at the point of measurement.

3)         Quality measurement for monitoring of a storage or transmission system that utilizes video compression and decompression techniques, either a single pass or a concatenation of such techniques.

4)         Lab testing of video systems.

This Recommendation includes an electronic attachment containing several short high definition (HD) video sequences, their corresponding predicted mean opinion scores (MOS), and the predicted MOS for five HD databases available via VQEG.
