This thesis presents a subjective quality assessment of video processed through the device Ikusnet, which enables data transmission via a commercial LTE mobile data network for the needs of TV broadcasting. The main objective of the thesis is to determine whether Ikusnet meets the video quality criteria for RTV Slovenia's TV production.
The description, features, modes of operation and applications of the device Ikusnet by Prodys are given in the initial chapter, as well as the purpose of the device's use at RTV Slovenia.
Next, we present different methods of subjective video quality assessment and their advantages.
This is followed by a description of the implementation of the video quality assessment, which entailed video transmission via a commercial LTE mobile data network and subsequent subjective quality assessment of the transmitted footage. Results indicate that Ikusnet does not provide adequate video quality for longer TV broadcasting signals. On the other hand, it satifies the criteria of RTV Slovenia for planned and ad-hoc news broadcasts of shorther length.
We conclude with a discussion of the possibilities of the device's usage that allow for the transfer of broadcasting TV signals via a commercial LTE mobile data network.
