Abstract

Viewing while commuting’ is a typical use case for mobile
video. However, experimental and behavioral influences of
watching three-dimensional (3D) video in vibrating
vehicles have not been widely researched. The goal of this
study is 1) to explore the influence of video presentation
modes (two-dimensional and stereoscopic 3D) on the
quality of experience and 2) to understand the nature of the
movement patterns that users perform to maintain an
optimal viewing position while viewing videos on a mobile
device in three commuting contexts and in a controlled
laboratory environment. A hybrid method for quality
evaluation was used for combining quantitative preference
ratings, qualitative descriptions of quality, situational
audio/video data-collection, and sensors. The high-quality
and heterogeneous audiovisual stimuli were viewed on a
mobile device equipped with a parallax barrier display. The
results showed that the stereoscopic 3D (S3D) video
presentation mode provided more satisfying quality of
experience than the two-dimensional presentation mode in
all studied contexts. To maintain an optimal viewing
position in the vehicles, the users moved the device in their
hands to the directions around the vertical and the
horizontal axes in a leaned sitting position. This movement
behavior was guided by the contexts but not by the quality,
indicating the general importance of these results for mobile
video viewing in vibrating vehicles.
