Quality of Experience in Distributed Interactive Multimedia Environments: Toward a Theoretical Framework

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The past decades have witnessed a rapid growth of Distributed Interactive Multimedia Environments (DIMEs). Despite their intensity of user-involved interaction, the existing evaluation frameworks remain very much system-centric. As a step toward the human-centric paradigm, the authors present a conceptual framework of Quality of Experience (QoE) in DIMEs, to model, measure, and understand user experience and its relationship with the traditional Quality of Service (QoS) metrics. A multi-disciplinary approach is taken to build up the framework based on the theoretical results from various fields including psychology, cognitive sciences, sociology, and information technology.
