Information technology — Advanced image coding and evaluation — Part 1: Guidelines for image coding system evaluation

ISO/IEC TR 29170-1:2017 recommends best practices for coding system evaluation of images and image sequences. ISO/IEC TR 29170-1:2017 defines a common vocabulary of terms for coding system evaluation and divides evaluation methods into three broad categories:

a) subjective assessment;

b) objective assessment;

c) computational assessment.

In addition to these broad assessment categories, this document discusses special care that is given for coding unusual imagery, e.g. high dynamic range or high colour depth.

A fourth assessment category, hardware complexity, is often important for real-time or computationally complex applications; however, it is outside the scope of this document.
