The quality performance of the 7 upsampling methods is evaluated using 10 test depth maps
to lower resolution first and then the high-resolution depth maps are constructed using seven

DTBU, JBF, ABU, and VBU in the scan order.
Table 1 represents the average subjective quality score of each upsampling method and
Table 2 shows the mean scores of different objective quality metrics on upsampled depth
maps. The results are derived from averaging the quality scores of the collection of 10 images.
As upsampling artifacts are important in edge locations, edge PSNR (E-PSNR) and nonedge
PSNR (NE-PSNR) are also computed.
