In this contribution, we present an objective assessment method for the evaluation, without reference, of the degradation of the video quality induced by the reduction of the temporal resolution. The assessment of the jerkiness perceived by a human observer is performed by feeding a multilayer neural network with the statistical distributions of the kinematics data (speed, acceleration and jerk of objects on the image plane) evaluated on a video shot. To identify the neural network (architecture and parameters) that best fit the human behavior, a subjective experiment has been performed. Validation of the model on the test set indicate a good match between the Mean Opinion Score (MOS) and the jerkiness indicator computed by the neural network.
