Ambient assisted living (AAL) has the ambitious goal of improving the quality of life and maintaining independence of older and vulnerable people through the use of technology. Most of the western world will see a very large increase in the number of older people within the next 50 years with limited resources to care for them. AAL is seen as a promising(More)
Frame-by-frame video watermark embedding without considering motion, results in flicker and other motion mismatch artifacts in the watermarked video. Motion compensated temporal filtering (MCTF) provides a better framework for video watermarking by accounting object motion. However, depending on motion and texture characteristics of the video and the choice(More)
Bit streams of scalable coded media are adapted at various nodes in multimedia usage chains to cater the variations in network bandwidths, display device resolutions and resources and usage preferences. This is achieved by extracting the most relevant segments from the scalable coded bit stream corresponding to the quality-resolution requirements. Such(More)
Current digital watermarking methods based on the discrete wavelet transform use orthogonal wavelet kernels. In this paper, we discuss the use of morphological wavelets, which are a class of non-linear wavelets, in digital watermarking for scalable coded images. Three different scenarios for embedding the watermark, namely, 1) embedding only in the low pass(More)
This paper proposes a novel scalable authentication scheme that utilizes the progressive enhancement functionality in JPEG 2000 scalable image coding. The proposed method first models the wavelet-based quality scalable coding to identify the effect of the quantization and de-quantization on wavelet coefficient magnitudes and the data embedded within such(More)
A model for embedding distortion performance for wavelet based watermarking is presented in this paper. Firstly wavelet based watermarking schemes are generalised into a single common framework. Then a mathematical approach has been made to find the relationship between distortion performance metrics and the watermark embedding parameters. The derived model(More)
A framework for evaluating wavelet based watermarking schemes against scalable coded visual media content adaptation attacks is presented. The framework, Watermark Evaluation Bench for Content Adaptation Modes (WEBCAM), aims to facilitate controlled evaluation of wavelet based watermarking schemes under MPEG-21 part-7 digital item adaptations (DIA). WEBCAM(More)
