GUC - VIsible Spectrum Smartphone Iris Video (VISSIV) Database


GUC - VIsible Spectrum Smartphone Iris Video (VISSIV) Database

GUC - Visible Spectrum Smartphone Iris Database consists of iris videos obtained from 31 different subjects in visible spectrum. The iris 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 iris has 2 video samples in the database and hence a total of 248 iris videos. Each unique iris video is used to generate the presentation attack videos by replaying them on retina display enabled iPad. The total number of artefact (or spoof/presentation attack) videos in the database is 248.
