Abstract

A full-reference image quality assessment (FR-IQA) method for multi-distortion based on visual mutual information (MD-IQA) is proposed to solve the problem that the existing FR-IQA methods are mostly applicable to single-distorted images, but the assessment result for multiply distorted images is not ideal. First, the reference image and the distorted image are preprocessed by steerable pyramid decomposition and contrast sensitivity function (CSF). Next, a Gaussian scale mixture (GSM) model and an image distorted model are respectively constructed for the reference images and the distorted images. Then, visual distorted models are constructed both for the reference images and the distorted images. Finally, the mutual information between the processed reference image and the distorted image is calculated to obtain the full-reference quality assessment index for multiply distorted images. The experimental results show that the proposed method has higher accuracy and better performance for multiply distorted images.
