SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Psytechnics, the leading provider of voice and video quality measurement tools for the telecom industry, has launched a white paper that outlines the challenges and methodologies of measuring video quality in multimedia broadcast services.

The report, titled "Picture This," describes the quality problems that can arise with the range of emerging multimedia and video services, such as streaming video on cell phones, video phone calls and video messaging. According to the paper, problems such as blurring, blocking and packet loss can all affect video quality, and implementing video quality measurement and diagnostic tools can help address customer expectations.

The report examines subjective and objective methods of monitoring video quality, and describes both intrusive and non-intrusive models. The white paper also provides an overview of the role that ITU-T standards will play in developing solutions for video quality measurement, and outlines J.144, the ITU-T ratified recommendation that Psytechnics has licensed exclusively from its developers, BTexact.

"As multimedia services such as video telephony, video messaging and broadcast services over PCs and cell phones proliferate, consumers expect the same level of video quality that they would receive on their home TV sets," said John Winchester, CEO at Psytechnics. "Just as good voice quality is essential to emerging services like VoIP and cellular phones, ensuring video quality is critical to winning and retaining customers for new broadcast and multimedia offerings."
