The IREX IV evaluation builds upon IREX III as a performance test of one-to-many iris recognition. This report is the second part of the IREX IV evaluation, which specifically, evaluates the ability of automated iris recognition algorithms to match heavily compressed standard iris images and determines the optimal set of compression parameters for JP2 compression and the maximum capabilities for one-to-many matching.
