PAVID - Presentation Attack Video Iris Database

Presentation Attack Video Iris Database (PAVID)

Presentation Attack Video Iris Database (PAVID) consists of periocular videos obtained from 76 different subjects in the visible spectrum. The periocular videos are obtained using two different smartphone cameras (Nokia Lumia 1020 and iPhone 5S). The videos are obtained in the unconstrained conditions under the mixed illumination consisting of natural sunlight and artificial room light. Each unique periocular is captured twice (2 samples) in the database and hence a total of 152 videos from each smartphone. The database also consists of 608 artefact periocular videos.
