Lee Wang, R.S. Ramanujan, J.A. Newhouse, M. Kaddoura, A. Ahamad, K.J. Thurber, H.J. Siegel
Proceedings of IEEE International Conference on Multimedia Computing and Systems  
A novel objective approach to assessing the relative perceptual quality of MPEG-encoded video sequences is presented in this paper.  ...  Quality comparison of two MPEG-encoded video sequences is performed directly in the frequency domain rather than in the pixel domain.
