Video Evaluation

Subjective and objective evaluations of video processing

This activity is part of the EBU Video Systems & Workflows group. Goals are to perform subjective & objective evaluations of production codecs, gather test sequences, investigate AI-empowered algorithms and test SD -> HD / HD -> UHD upsampling.

Currently the following deliverables are planned (green indicates the deliverable has already been delivered). Note that deliverables are dependent on enough participation in the work and that the planning is subject to change. New deliverables are added regularly.


  • status_med_12px.png Development of Codecs Testing Management software (Q2 2024)
  • status_med_12px.png Real-time, Mezzanine Codecs Tests (Q2 2024)
  • status_med_12px.png Production Codecs implementation tests (Q2 2024)
  • status_med_12px.png New video test sets creation (Q3 2024)
  • status_low_12px.png Upressing algorithms benchmarking (Q4 2024)
  • status_low_12px.png Report on objective video quality metrics (Q4 2024)
