The five main objectives of Qualinet are:

  1. Development of methodologies to systematically assess the subjectively perceived QoE for multimedia presentations, resulting in reproducible and reliable scores.
  2. Identification of measurable features which are relevant for the subjectively perceived QoE.
  3. Development of effective and robust metrics to objectively measure the quality of a multimedia presentation, as perceived by a human observer with emphasis on multimedia communication applications.
  4. Development of tools for optimization of existing and emerging multimedia systems, products and services, based on the subjective perception of quality as induced by cross-modality, saliency, and masking effects, prevalent in multi-modal content presentation.
  5. Design and optimization of existing as well as new interaction models between users and content in multimedia systems.
