P.1203 Open Dataset

This open dataset from the ITU-T P.1203 standardization procedure (P.NATS) contains the following data:

  • 2 training and 2 validation databases
  • Feature data:
    • Mode 0 (metadata-level)
    • Mode 1 (packet-header-level)
    • Mode 2 (bitstream-level, 2 percent)
    • Mode 3 (bitstream-level)
  • Subjective ratings
  • Model output scores based on itu-p1203 version 1.2.1

Note: A previous version of this dataset contained a bug in the calculation, which lead to the wrong stalling values being used for model input. The performance reported in the ACM MMsys paper thus appears worse. The correct values are listed here. Thanks to Tran Thi Thanh Huyen at the University of Aizu for observing this error.

The data was analyzed with the ITU-T P.1203 implementation from the same authors. Please carefully read the license of that software.

Performance

The performance of the model as calculated based on this dataset is as follows:

Context Mode Mean RMSE Mean RMSE* Mean PLCC Mean SROCC
mobile 0 0.370 0.181 0.917 0.893
mobile 1 0.375 0.184 0.913 0.896
mobile 2 0.403 0.202 0.900 0.888
mobile 3 0.426 0.225 0.889 0.880
pc 0 0.462 0.265 0.869 0.838
pc 1 0.439 0.259 0.883 0.874
pc 2 0.398 0.209 0.910 0.897
pc 3 0.367 0.174 0.926 0.908

File Layout

The following features are available:

  • features/features_mode0.csv: Per-output-sample aggregated features used for Pv mode 0, as parsed by the measurement window, columns:
    • bitrate_kbps_segment_size: Actual segment bitrate
    • bitrate_kbps_target: Encoding target bitrate
    • coding_height: Encoding height in pixels
    • coding_res: Number of encoded pixels
    • coding_width: Encoding width in pixels
    • display_height: Height of the display in pixels
    • display_res: Number of pixels in display
    • display_width: Width of the display in pixels
    • dts: Frame decoding timestamps
    • framerate: Encoding frames per second
    • sample_index: Index of the output sample (1 per second)
    • pvs_id: Identifier of the PVS
  • features/features_mode1.csv: Per-output-sample aggregated features used for Pv mode 1, as parsed by the measurement window, columns:
    • bitrate_kbps_segment_size: Actual segment bitrate
    • bitrate_kbps_target: Encoding target bitrate
    • coding_height: Encoding height in pixels
    • coding_res: Number of encoded pixels
    • coding_width: Encoding width in pixels
    • display_height: Height of the display in pixels
    • display_res: Number of pixels in display
    • display_width: Width of the display in pixels
    • dts: Frame decoding timestamps
    • framerate: Encoding frames per second
    • gop_length: GOP length in seconds
    • i_sizes_average: Average size of I frames in Bytes
    • iframe_ratio: Ratio between I and Non-I frame sizes
    • noni_sizes_average: Average size of non-I frames
    • sample_index: Index of the output sample (1 per second)
    • pvs_id: Identifier of the PVS
  • features/features_mode2.tar.bz2: Per-output-sample aggregated features used for Pv mode 2, as parsed by the measurement window. One CSV file for each PVS, see column description below. If BS_TwoPercentQP1 is not present, 2% of the bitstream are not enough to provide bitstream data, hence the features from mode 1 needs to be used for calculation.
  • features/features_mode3.tar.bz2: Per-output-sample aggregated features used for Pv mode 3, as parsed by the measurement window. One CSV file for each PVS, with columns:
    • pvs_id: Identifier of the PVS
