AVRate is a program which allows people to view video and listen to audio data and then rate the seen content by different means of software and hardware inputs. Software inputs can be sliders, which position can be changed with the mouse or buttons which can be clicked. Hardware input is an external slider attached over USB.

Before the actual use, configuration has to be done in three parts, a main XML configuration file, a playlist containing the data that is to be played and some settings right before the test regarding the test subjects.


Please cite the following paper in your reference if you use this tool for your work:

P. Lebreton, M.-N. Garcia and A. Raake (2016). AVRate: An Open Source Modular Audio/Visual Subjective Evaluation Test Interface, 8th International Workshop on Quality of Multimedia Experience (QoMEX).


The work done in the development of this software has been carried out thanks to the funding of Deutsche Telekom AG. This development was performed in the context of the development of audiovisual quality models performed at the Technical University of Berlin in the group Assessment of IP-based Application (AIPA). It is now supported by the Technical University of Ilmenau, at the group Audio Visual Technology (AVT).
