The subjective assessment of super multiview (SMV) video considers two main perceptual factors: image quality and visual comfort at the viewpoint transition. While previous works only covered raw content with high levels of visual comfort, this work supersedes them by targeting the subjective assessment of SMV content with coding artifacts. The outcome of this analysis yields important conclusions regarding the relationship between these two factors, indicating that 1) the perceived image quality is independent from the view point change speed, and 2) the perceived visual comfort at the view point transition is independent from the image quality. These conclusions facilitate the extension of the scope of existing subjective perception models, designed for raw SMV content, to coded content.
