Abstract

In the study reported in this paper, the research aims to tackle the question “Do the hardware characteristics of a device affect the viewer’s perceived quality of the media?” Using different hardware devices and media clips that have had different frame rates the viewer’s information assimilation and satisfaction of the media clip was measured. The results suggest that there is a deeper link between the user’s information assimilation than just the hardware that the media is viewed on. On the other hand a user’s satisfaction with clip quality is affected by the alterations in frame rate of the media rather than the device as the satisfaction levels increased regardless of the hardware characteristics.
