QoE Assessment Aspects for Virtual Reality and Holographic Telepresence Applications
The cutting-edge evolution of mobile communication systems and Internet technologies in nowadays transitional period from the information age to the experience age has brought attention to the evolving virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) applications and moves towards the development of holographic telepresence systems. Since these applications are devoted in creating immersive and interactive experiences, the quality of experience (QoE) as it is perceived by the end-users will become fundamental constituent in their performance evaluation process. In this paper, the significance of QoE in the development and implementation of the emerging technologies of VR and holographic telepresence systems is analyzed. Moreover, the QoE influencing factors for VR applications and the distinction among this evolving technology and the conventional 2D video content are outlined. Furthermore, a classification of the QoE assessment methods, together with an analysis of the more significant metrics with regard to VR applications is presented. © 2022, ICST Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering.
