Abstract

The multimedia capability of video telephony and video conferencing systems has many applications and benefits. This paper describes research and development that aims to optimise video compression systems for a specific application - personal communication at a distance for deaf people. Results of eye movement tracking experiments and proposals for image content prioritisation based on these results are presented. The requirement for an appropriate quality assessment methodology is also addressed.
