© 1991-2012 IEEE. With the wide application of stereoscopic video technology, the quality of stereoscopic video has attracted people's attention. Objective stereoscopic video quality assessment (SVQA) is highly challenging, but essential, particularly the no-reference (NR) SVQA method, where reference information is not needed and a large number of samples are required for training and testing sets. However, as far as we know, there are only a few samples in the established stereo video database, which is unsuitable for NR quality assessment and seriously hampers the development of NR-SVQA method. For these difficulties that we encountered, we carry out a comprehensive subjective evaluation of stereoscopic video quality in our newly established TJU-SVQA databases that contain various contents, mixed resolution coding and symmetrically/asymmetrically distorted stereoscopic videos. Furthermore, we propose a new inter-frame cross map to predict the objective quality scores. We compare and analyze the performance of several state-of-the-art 2D and 3D quality evaluation methods on our new databases. The experimental results on our established databases and a public database demonstrate that the proposed method can robustly predict the quality of stereoscopic videos.
