Abstract

There has been a significant amount of research investigating how image quality is evaluated in a home setting for entertainment purposes. It is, however, still unclear how different tasks can impact the perception of image quality. In turn it is interesting to understand whether image quality can affect the performance for such tasks. In this paper we use the setting of a disaster situation to study the relation between image quality and performance. An experiment was conducted where participants viewed slideshows of disaster situations using different levels of image quality. By measuring how well they were able to reconstruct the events they saw, we show that the reduced image quality did not have an effect on their performance.
