More than ever, the growing amount of exchanged digital content calls for efficient and practical techniques to protect intellectual property rights. During the past two decades, watermarking techniques have been proposed to embed and detect information within these contents, with four key requirements at hand: robustness, security, capacity, and(More)
In this paper, we describe a Trellis Coded Quantization (TCQ)-based quantization and watermarking technique in the framework of JPEG2000 still image compression. Furthermore, we investigate the design of a novel joint compression and watermarking scheme based on a hybrid TCQ module which can perform at the same time quantization and watermark embedding. The(More)
The present work explores the use of a specific method, called non linear hybrid watermarking to watermark High Dynamic Range (HDR) images. The non linear hybrid technique combines both additive and multiplicative watermark embedding and is based on a square root embedding equation. We evaluate the robustness and objective quality of HDR tone mapped(More)
A new Treillis Coded Quantization (TCQ)-based data hiding method for JPEG2000 part 2 is presented. The main feature of the proposed scheme is that it jointly achieves quantization and information embedding. The characteristics of the TCQ quantization are exploited to quantize selected wavelet coefficients with specific codebooks. These codebooks are(More)
In networks the content distribution through genuine channels needs the use of digital watermarks. The digital watermark is to make the content self-identifying i.e. to place the information within the content itself. Digital images are the significant vector for network communication. As 2D-image signals are non-stationary signal wavelet transform is more(More)
Watermarking in the Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG)2000 coding pipeline is investigated in this paper. A joint quantization and water-marking method based on trellis-coded quantization (TCQ) is proposed to reliably embed data during the quantization stage of the JPEG2000 part 2 codec. The central contribution of this work is the use of a single(More)
