Our paper, “A Novel Video Watermarking Approach Based on Implicit Distortions”, has been accepted for presentation at the International Conference on Consumer Electronics (ICCE) 2018.
In order to protect videos from copyright infringement, a novel video watermarking approach is proposed. As its main novelty, this paper proposes a watermarking scheme that uses implicit distortions generated by a video encoder, contrary to the artificial distortions used in the state-of-the-art. The scheme proves to be both robust and imperceptible, thus being applicable to the distribution of copyright-sensitive multimedia.
By explicitly changing a single coding decision (a), many implicit distortions are created (b).
An extended version was later published in IEEE Transactions on Consumer Electronics.
