The NRJPEGQS metric reacts harder (i.e., it shows higher quality differences) than the NRJPEG2000 because it was designed to detect the blockiness introduced by the discrete cosine transform.
The discrete cosine transform (DCT) [2] based techniques, for example, JPEG and MPEG, lead to blockiness, whereas the JPEG2000 compression [3,4] involving wavelet transform [5] mainly introduces blurring and ringing artifacts [6].

However, this transition is not extremely abrupt, and as C/N decreases from perfect reception, received picture experiences different kinds of degradations before reaching a complete "blockiness." According to some literature [20, 21] this transition from no degradation to full degradation takes place in a received C/N fall of 1 to 3dB.
In addition, as evidenced by Figure 1(e), reconstructions due the proposed model do not show the relative blurriness speckles evident in Figure 1(c) (by PM method); it does not manifest the relative blockiness visible on Figure 1(d) (by TV method) neither does it show heavily jagged edges apparent in Figure 1(f) due to the D-a-PM algorithm.
