For compression and decompression of biometric face and iris images
JPEG 2000 is an international image compression standard (ISO/IEC 15444) referenced–and in some cases recommended–by biometrics standards for face and iris image compression. Several published technical reports cite the superior performance of JPEG 2000 as compared to JPEG. JPEG 2000 is used extensively for applications involving large images including medical imaging, historical archiving, and digital cinema. JPEG 2000 is also used for compression of 1000 ppi fingerprint images (see Aware WSQ1000).
Aware’s JPEG 2000 compression libraries are available as a standalone SDK or as part of several other Aware SDK products.
