Abstract

A no-reference perceptual sharpness quality metric, inspired by visual attention information, is presented for a better simulation of the Human Visual System (HVS) response to blur distortions. Saliency information about a scene is used to accentuate blur distortions around edges present in conspicuous areas and attenuate those distortions present in the rest of the image. Simulation results are presented to illustrate the performance of the proposed metric.
