In stereoscopic video, it is well-known that compression efficiency can be improved, without sacrificing PSNR, by predicting one view from the other. Moreover, additional gain can be achieved by subsampling one of the views, since the Human Visual System can perceive high frequency information from the other view. In this work, we propose subsampling of one of the views by scaling its temporal rate and/or spatial size at regular intervals using a real-time stereoscopic H.264/AVC codec, and assess the subjective quality of the resulting videos using DSCQS test methodology. We show that stereoscopic videos can be coded at a rate about 1.2 times that of monoscopic videos with little visual quality degradation.
