Performance evaluation of interactive video compression schemes and navigation model for omnidirectional images

Keywords: Image compression - Omnidirectional image

Functional Description: This code consists of two parts. First, the code generates typical navigation paths of users viewing omnidirectional images. This generation relies on Markov modeling of the user behavior (probability to choose a first viewing direction to start the navigation, probability to choose a head motion direction, probability of continuing the head motion in the same direction, probability to stop the head motion). The second part of the code implements various criteria to evaluate the compression performance. Three criteria are computed: the distortion averaged along a set of typical navigation paths, the transmission rate related to these navigation paths, and also the storage cost of the compressed image to be able to serve any possible image request. From these 3 criteria, weighted Bjontegaard metric, and iso values are computed.
