— The huge success of the Internet allows for the transmission, wide distribution, and access of electronic data in an effortless manner. Content providers are faced with the challenge of how to protect their electronic data. This problem has generated a flurry of recent research activity in the area of digital watermarking of electronic content for(More)
The growth of new imaging technologies has created a need for techniques that can be used for copyright protection of digital images. Copyright protection involves the authentication of image content and/or ownership and can be used to identify illegal copies of a (possibly forged) image. One approach for copyright protection is to introduce an invisible(More)
We describe and show the results of video coding based on a three-dimensional (3-D) spatio-temporal subband decomposition. The results include a 1-Mbps coder based on a new adaptive differential pulse code modulation scheme (ADPCM) and adaptive bit allocation. This rate is useful for video storage on CD-ROM. Coding results are also shown for a 384-kbps rate(More)
In this work we study certain aspects of the problem of wa-termarking images, not for the classical example of ownership identiication, but instead for embedding a unique identiier that can act as a serial number" for the image in which it is embedded. In this context, two fundamental questions are: a what is the maximum number of diierent watermarks that(More)
Digital watermarking research has generally focused upon two classes of watermarks, fragile and robust. Robust watermarks are designed to be detected even after attempts are made to remove them. Fragile watermarks are used for authentication purposes and are capable of detecting even minute changes of the watermarked content. Unfortunately, neither type of(More)
Video streaming, or the real-time delivery of video over a data network, is the underlying technology behind many applications including video conferencing, video-on-demand, and the delivery of educational and entertainment content. In many applications, particularly ones involving entertainment content, security issues, such as conditional access and copy(More)
Medical Ultrasonography is a valuable imaging technology for medical diagnostics and to guide interventional procedures. Ultrasound imaging is particularly useful in breast cancer detection and diagnosis for women with dense breast tissue where traditional mammography may fail to detect suspicious areas. However, ultrasound imaging suffers from speckle(More)
