Objective quality assessment of stereoscopic 3D video is a challenging problem. We carry out a subjective test on symmetrically and asymmetrically compressed stereoscopic videos followed by different levels of low-pass filtering. We observe a strong systematic bias when using direct averaging of 2D video quality of both views to predict 3D video quality. We use a binocular rivalry inspired model to account for the prediction bias, leading to significantly improved quality estimation of

The model allows us to quantitatively predict the potential coding gain of asymmetric video compression, and provides new insight on the development of high efficiency 3D video coding schemes.
