© 2018 IEEE. The demand for very high-resolution video content in entertainment services (4K, 8K, panoramic, 360 VR) puts an increasing load on the distribution network. In order to reduce the network usage in existing delivery infrastructure for such services while keeping a good quality of experience, dynamic spatial video adaptation at the client side is seen as a key feature, and is actively investigated by academics and industrials. However, the impact of spatial adaptation on quality perception is not clear. In this paper, we propose a methodology for the evaluation of such adapted content, conduct a series of perceived quality measurements and discuss results showing potential benefits and drawbacks of the technique. Based on our results, we also propose a signaling mechanism in MPEG-DASH to assist the client in its spatial adaptation logic.
