Handbook of multisensor data fusion [Book Review]


Cox, Matthew L. Miller, and Jeffrey A. Bloom. San Diego, CA: Academic Press, 2002, 576 pp. $69.96 (hardbound). A key ingredient to copyright protection, digital watermarking provides a solution to the illegal copying of material. It also has broader uses in recording and electronic transaction tracking. This book explains “the principles underlying digital watermarking technologies, describes the requirements that have given rise to them, and discusses the diverse ends to which these technologies are being applied.” [book notes] The authors are extensively experienced in digital watermarking technologies. Cox recently joined the NEC Research Institute after a five-year stint at AT&T Bell Labs. Miller’s interest began at AT&T Bell Labs in 1979. He also is employed at NEC. Bloom is a researcher in digital watermarking at the Sarnoff Corporation. His acquaintance with the field began at Signafy, Inc. and continued through his employment at NEC Research Institute. The book features the following: Review of the underlying principles of watermarking relevant for image, video, and audio; Discussion of a wide variety of applications, theoretical principles, detection and embedding concepts, and key properties; Examination of copyright protection and other applications; Presentation of a series of detailed examples that illustrate watermarking concepts and practices; Appendix, in print and on the Web, containing the source code for the examples; Comprehensive glossary of terms. “The authors provide a comprehensive overview of digital watermarking, rife with detailed examples and grounded within strong theoretical framework. Digital Watermarking will serve as a valuable introduction as well as a useful reference for those engaged in the field.”—Walter Bender, Director, M.I.T. Media Lab
