The video coding standards comparison is historically based on objective metrics that do not correlate well with
subjective results. The subjective evaluations that are done at the end of each standard development process show
significant differences between the objective and subjective metrics. This paper reviews the both approaches and
outlines some of the possible difference resulting in these discrepancies. Additionally suggests an approach that will
compensate for these differences and help streamline the development of video coding architectures in the future by
closing the gap between objective and subjective evaluations.
