Video Acceptability and Frame Rate
Fall 1995 (vol. 2 no. 3)
pp. 32-40

This paper examines the effects that degrading frame rates has on user perception of a video application in a typical Graphic User Interface (GUI) environment. Specifically, experimentation shows that degrading the frame rate, which is a QoS parameter, of a continuous media stream exhibits perceived differences depending on the nature of the application. It was found that degrading the QoS of a multimedia session has different consequences for the network bandwidth required for different distributed multimedia applications, which is directly related to the number of users that can be supported concurrently by a multimedia server.
