Description

Digital watermarking is a key ingredient to copyright protection. It provides a solution to illegal copying of digital material and has many other useful applications such as broadcast monitoring and the recording of electronic transactions. Now, for the first time, there is a book that focuses exclusively on this exciting technology. Digital Watermarking covers the crucial research findings in the field: it 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. As a result, additional groundwork is laid for future developments in this field, helping the reader understand and anticipate new approaches and applications.

Key Features

* Emphasizes the underlying watermarking principles that are relevant for all media: images, video, and audio.
* Discusses a wide variety of applications, theoretical principles, detection and embedding concepts and the key properties of digital watermarks--robustness, fidelity, data payload, and security
* Examines copyright protection and many other applications, including broadcast monitoring, transaction tracking, authentication, copy control, and device control.
* Presents a series of detailed examples called "Investigations" that illustrate key watermarking concepts and practices.
* Includes an appendix in the book and on the web containing the source code for the examples.
* Includes a comprehensive glossary of watermarking terminology

Readership

multimedia engineers, communications engineers, image and signal processing engineers, A/V specialists, and students of signal/image processing and cryptology
