No-Reference Quality Assessment for 3D Colored Point Cloud and Mesh Models

by   Zicheng Zhang, et al.

To improve the viewer's Quality of Experience (QoE) and optimize computer graphics applications, 3D model quality assessment (3D-QA) has become an important task in the multimedia area. Point cloud and mesh are the two most widely used digital representation formats of 3D models, the visual quality of which is quite sensitive to lossy operations like simplification and compression. Therefore, many related studies such as point cloud quality assessment (PCQA) and mesh quality assessment (MQA) have been carried out to measure the caused visual quality degradations. However, a large part of previous studies utilizes full-reference (FR) metrics, which means they may fail to predict the quality level with the absence of the reference 3D model. Furthermore, few 3D-QA metrics are carried out to consider color information, which significantly restricts the effectiveness and scope of application. In this paper, we propose a no-reference (NR) quality assessment metric for colored 3D models represented by both point cloud and mesh. First, we project the 3D models from 3D space into quality-related geometry and color feature domains. Then, the natural scene statistics (NSS) and entropy are utilized to extract quality-aware features. Finally, the Support Vector Regressor (SVR) is employed to regress the quality-aware features into quality scores. Our method is mainly validated on the colored point cloud quality assessment database (SJTU-PCQA) and the colored mesh quality assessment database (CMDM). The experimental results show that the proposed method outperforms all the state-of-art NR 3D-QA metrics and obtains an acceptable gap with the state-of-art FR 3D-QA metrics.
