Evaluation of coding efficiency is traditionally modeled as a continuous rate-distortion (R-D) function, where the peak signal-To-noise ratio (PSNR) is adopted as the quality measure. Although the PSNR-versus-bitrate curve offers some useful tradeoff information between video quality and coding bit-rates, it does not take human perceptual experience into account. In this work, by following the recent image/video quality assessment framework based on the just-noticeable-difference (JND) notion, we conduct a subjective test for HEVC (High Efficiency Video Codec) video to measure the QP value that lies in the boundary of perceptually lossless and lossy coded bit streams for each human subject. This is also known as the first JND point. It is observed that the statistics of the first JND points of 30 subjects follows the normal distribution for a great majority of test sequences. Finally, a machine-learning approach is proposed to predict the mean of the group-based JND distribution based on extracted video features. It is shown by experimental results that the mean JND point can be predicted accurately.
