Abstract

In this work, a novel and efficient digital video watermarking technique based on the Singular Value Decomposition performed in the Multiresolution Singular Value Decomposition domain is proposed. While most of the existing watermarking schemes embed the watermark in all the video frames, which is time-consuming and also affects the perceptibly of the video quality, the proposed method chooses only the fast motion frames in each shot to host the watermark. In doing so, the number of frames to be processed is consequently reduced and a better quality of the watermarked video is also ensured since the human visual system cannot notice the variations in fast moving regions. The watermark information is embedded by Quantization Index Modulation which is a blind watermarking algorithm. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method can achieve a very good transparency, while being robust against various kinds of attacks such as filtering, noising, compression, and frame collusion. Compared with several methods found in the literature, the proposed method gives a better robustness.
