  Sebastian Arndt is a researcher at the Quality and Usability Lab of the Telekom Innovation Laboratories, TU Berlin. He studied Computer Science at Technische Universität Berlin and received his diploma in 2010. He received his doctoral degree (Dr.-Ing.) in 2015 with the thesis title 'Neural Correlates of Quality During Perception of Audiovisual Stimuli'. His current research focus is on physiological changes during the perception of audiovisual quality. 2012 he was a visiting researcher at MuSAE Lab (Montreal, Canada) in order to work on multimodal neural correlates for synthesized speech.

Zusammenfassung While most quality studies measure purely the subjectively perceived quality of videos, physiological measurements can give more detailed information about the perception of multimedia consumers. Thus, they provide better information about long-term effects as they are difficult to estimate by purely subjective studies. The current study uses electroencephalography (EEG) to measure effects of fatigue during watching low and high quality videos. Therefore, a usual video was chosen, after partly reducing the bit rate of the video subjects watched it and gave subjective ratings accompanied by measuring EEG.With the obtained data we showed that lower video quality produces higher percentage of alpha waves in the EEG, thus participants got more fatigued. Since these alpha waves are an indicator for the level of fatigue.
