In this paper, we propose a framework for the real-time estimation of a multidimensional QoE of Multi-View Video and Audio (MVV-A) IP transmission. The framework utilizes linear multiple regression analysis with application-level and transport-level QoS parameters which can be measured in real time. In order to cope with a variety of MVV-A usage-situations, we introduce the concept of usage-situation type for grouping usage-situations with similar features to apply a representative regression line. We deal with two contents, two camera arrangements, and two user interfaces for viewpoint change as representative examples of the usage-situations. We assess multidimensional QoE of MVV-A with various types of average load, playout buffering time, and delay in the network. We then conduct the multiple regression analysis for the multidimensional QoE values represented by a psychological scale. From the comparison of measured values and estimated ones, we notice that real-time estimation of QoE is feasible in MVV-A IP transmission.
