MSU Video Quality Measurement Tool is a free program for video quality measurements. Supports different input formats (AVI, AVS, YUV, BMP) and metrics (PSNR, Delta, VQM, SSIM, MSU Blurring / Blocking Measure).

Video quality is a characteristic of a video passed through a video transmission/processing system, a formal or informal measure of perceived video degradation (typically, compared to the original video). Video processing systems may introduce some amounts of distortion or artifacts in the video signal, so video quality evaluation is an important problem. MSU VQMT is a free program for video quality measurements. This application allows you to create objective comparison of video codecs and perform filters video analysis.

Supported video formats:
*.AVI
*.AVS
*.YUV (scientific) - 8, 10, 14 and 16 bits per color component
*.BMP (RGB24)
*.MOV, *.VOB, *.WMV, *.MP4, *.MPG, *.MKV, *.FLV and others (via AviSynth)

Supported metrics (and color spaces):
1. PSNR (Y,U,V,L,R,G,B) - most popular
2. Delta (Y,U,V,L, R,G,B)
3. MSAD (Y,U,V,L,R,G,B)
4. MSE (Y,U,V,L,R,G,B)
5. SSIM (Y)
6. VQM (Y)
7. MSU Blurring Metric (Y,U,V)
8. MSU Blocking Metric (Y,U,V)
9. MSU Brightness Flicking Metric (Y) - plugin
10. MSU Brightness Independent PSNR (Y) - plugin
11. MSU Drop Frame Metric (Y) - plugin
12. MSU Noise Estimation Metric (Y) - plugin
13. MSU Scene Change Detector (Y) - plugin

The program allows to answer the next questions:
1. One codec has more blurring than another. On what frames? Average mark?
2. One codec has more blocking than another. On what frames? Average mark?
3. One codec has lower quality than another. On what frames? Average mark in PSNR, VQM, SSIM?
4. Corresponding "bad frames" are saved automatically as BMP files.

Features:
1. Results are saved in *.CSV (can be opened everywhere)
2. All metrics are visualized (very useful for codec and filter debugging)
3. Main feature for codec lovers: comparative analysis.

5. All metrics are visualized (very useful for codec and filter debugging)
6. Main feature for codec lovers: comparative analysis.

Everybody in 5 minutes is able to demonstrate that one codec is better than another! It's easy:
1. Set "comparative analysis" and select original, sequences compressed with codec A and codec B (recommended more than 10000 frames).
2. Select metric (recommended Y-PSNR).
3. Select "Save bad frames" pairs of frames with maximum difference in values of the metric (A>B) will be detected and saved.
4. Press "Process", find output frames and select best pairs.
5. Upload frames to your favorite forum.
6. Done!

PRO Version Features:
1. Batch processing possibility (command-line tool).
2. More than 8 bit per color component raw files support. Supported color depth:
* 8 bits per component,
* 10 bits per component,
* 14 bits per component,
* 16 bits per component.
3, Supported color spaces:
* YV12,
* UYVY,
* YUY2,
* YUV,
* IYUV,
* PXXX (P010, P014, P016, etc.).
* HDTV support.
4. Intensive utilization of multicore processors power (highly parallelized processing).
