CIF

Cost, Insurance and Freight

A CPT involving ocean freight. In a CIF, the seller is responsible for paying for shipping and providing a minimum amount of insurance coverage up to the named port of destination, while the buyer is responsible for the transportation risk beyond the minimum coverage as soon as the good or product is loaded onto the ship. Legally, risk transfers when the good or product crosses the outer rail of the ship. A CIF is similar to a CFR, but also requires the seller to provide minimal insurance. See also: Incoterm.

Customer Information File

We made 225 encoded sequences from 9 raw videos that have a length of 8 seconds, with a resolution of QCIF.
In order to evaluate the performance of the proposed NR-B metric, we firstly validate the proposed method with five QCIF test sequences as low quality (LQ) video, as shown in Fig.

More experimental results between our proposed scheme and JVT-G012 for QCIF test sequences with different motion activity (low: container, grandma; moderate: foreman, news; high: carphone, salesman) at various target bit rate are shown in Table 1.
