— The impact of using (adaptive) wavelet packet subband structures as allowed in JPEG2000 Part 2 in iris image compression is investigated. The recognition performance of four different feature extraction schemes applied to correspondingly compressed images is compared to the usage of the dyadic decomposition structure of JPEG2000 Part 1 in the compression stage. A better recognition performance of the adaptively generated wavelet subband structures is observed, in particular of those generated with respect to optimal rate-distortion performance.
