Measuring Quality of Experience (QoE) of stereoscopic 3D video is a hot research topic. Subjective models are considered as the most reliable and facilitate development of objective models. However, to collect user opinion scores takes long time. Therefore, new subjective assessment models should be proposed providing not only time-efficiency but also good accuracy and reliability. In this study, two novel subjective QoE models are proposed as alternative to the conventional Double Stimulus Continuous Quality Scale method. Also, a fair comparison method is proposed to evaluate performances of the three subjective methods using the same stimuli prepared with the most recent multi-view video codec on an auto-stereoscopic 3DTV. Correlations are calculated using two objective QoE measures using depth maps and structural similarities. The results demonstrate that the performances of the proposed models are comparable to each other and both models are superior to the conventional method.
