A set of subjective attributes of audiovisual media content, originally suggested by Woszczyk et al. in a 1995 AES Convention paper, was examined for suitability for AV content classification tasks. Subjective experiments indicate that the 4x4 matrix of dimensions and attributes as suggested in the original paper can be reduced to a more compact 3x2 design for classification purposes without loss of information about the perceptual properties of the content. This can significantly reduce the cost of content classification by experiment.
