Digital visible or invisible watermarks are increasingly in demand for protecting or verifying the original image or video ownership. We propose a novel compressed-domain approach to embedding visible watermarks in MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 video streams. Our algorithms operate on the DCT coefficients which are obtained with minimal parsing of input video. The embedded watermarks adapt to the local video features such as brightness and complexity to achieve consistent perceptual visibility. The…

Standards-compliant watermarking for access management

These standards-compliant visible watermarking schemes for digital images and video in DCT-based compressed formats exploit some features of compressed data formats (such as JPEG and MPEG) which allow most of the work to be done in the compressed domain.

A User Attention Based Visible Video Watermarking Scheme

In this paper, a content dependent visible watermarking scheme for video is proposed. By using the focus detection framework developed in [10], we calculate the unsuitability contrary to the focus

Mismatching perceptual models for effective watermarking in the presence of compression

This paper presents a watermarking approach called Robust Reference Watermarking (RRW) which can be incorporated into a broad class of watermarked algorithms to improve their performance and demonstrates how embedding the watermark using a different perceptual model and domain than for compression can result in improved watermark extraction and detection reliability.

The experimental results demonstrate the superiority of the proposed reversible visible watermarking scheme compared to the existing methods, and adopts data compression for further reduction in the recovery packet size and improvement in embedding capacity.



Secure spread spectrum watermarking for multimedia

It is argued that insertion of a watermark under this regime makes the watermark robust to signal processing operations and common geometric transformations provided that the original image is available and that it can be successfully registered against the transformed watermarked image.

Protecting publicly available images with a visible image watermark

The technical goals for watermarking include applying a readily visible mark to the image that clearly identifies its ownership, permitting all image detail to be visible through the watermark, and making the watermarks difficult to remove.
