Author Affiliations +
In this retrospective we trace in broad strokes the development of image quality measures based on the study of the early stages of the human visual system (HVS), where contrast encoding is fundamental. We find that while presenters at the Human Vision and Electronic Imaging meetings have frequently strived to find points of contact between the study of human contrast psychophysics and the development of computer vision and image quality algorithms. Progress has not always been made on these terms, although indirect impact of vision science on more recent image quality metrics can be observed.
