Dr.-Ing. Jan-Niklas Voigt-Antons


Jan-Niklas Voigt-Antons joined the Telekom Innovation Laboratories as a research scientist in January 2009 and is working there since 2014 as a senior research scientist. He received his diploma in psychology in 2008 from the Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany, a Doctor-of-Engineering degree in 2014 from the Technische Universität Berlin, Germany and has been doing research at the Quality and Usability Lab at the Technische Universität (TU) Berlin, since. His research interests are in Quality-of-Experience evaluation and its physiological correlates with an emphasis on media transmissions and human-machine-interaction, including neural processing of multimodal interaction. During summer 2012 he was visiting researcher at MuSAE Lab (INRS-EMT), Canada where he examined neural correlates of quality perception for complex speech signals. In spring 2014 he was visiting researcher at the department of psychology of NTNU, Norway where he examined neural correlates of audiovisual asynchrony.

Abstract Subjective quality tests give important information about the user's perception on the quality of an audio or video signal. These tests are helpful but usually lack information about the user's cognitive state. This might be crucial when consuming a service, as lower quality services may lead to a less frequent use. Therefore, physiological measures have become more popular in the domain of quality assessment as they give more detailed insights about e.g. fatigue and attention of a person. In the current study we used spatially degraded videos and obtained 1) standard subjective quality judgments, 2) eye movement parameters and 3) brain activity using electroencephalography (EEG). The results indicate more focused attention on the degraded area once participants found that area, as pupil diameter increases and the proportion of alpha activity decreases. On the basis of the data a model is proposed which predicts the quality scores from the obtained physiological measures.
