Robustness of the Digital Image Watermarking Techniques against Brightness and Rotation Attack

The recent advent in the field of multimedia proposed a many facilities in transport, transmission and manipulation of data. Along with this advancement of facilities there are larger threats in authentication of data, its licensed use and protection against illegal use of data. A lot of digital image watermarking techniques have been designed and implemented to stop the illegal use of the digital multimedia images. This paper compares the robustness of three different watermarking schemes against brightness and rotation attacks. The robustness of the watermarked images has been verified on the parameters of PSNR (Peak Signal to Noise Ratio), RMSE (Root Mean Square Error) and MAE (Mean Absolute Error).

This paper addresses the problem of handling spatial misalignments due to camera-view changes or human-pose variations in person re-identification. We first introduce a boosting-based approach to learn a correspondence structure which indicates the patch-wise matching probabilities between images from a target camera pair. The learned correspondence structure can not only capture the spatial correspondence pattern between cameras but also handle the viewpoint or human-pose variation in individual images. Read More


Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) is a popular rhythm-based video game. Players perform steps on a dance platform in synchronization with music as directed by on-screen step charts. While many step charts are available in standardized packs, users may grow tired of existing charts, or wish to dance to a song for which no chart exists. Read More


The details of an image with noise may be restored by removing noise through a suitable image de-noising method. In this research, a new method of image de-noising based on using median filter (MF) in the wavelet domain is proposed and tested. Various types of wavelet transform filters are used in conjunction with median filter in experimenting with the proposed approach in order to obtain better results for image de-noising process, and, consequently to select the best suited filter.

Teleradiology enables medical images to be transferred over the computer networks for many purposes including clinical interpretation, diagnosis, archive, etc. In telemedicine, medical images can be manipulated while transferring. In addition, medical information security requirements are specified by the legislative rules, and concerned entities must adhere to them. Read More


Steganography is collection of methods to hide secret information ("payload") within non-secret information ("container"). Its counterpart, Steganalysis, is the practice of determining if a message contains a hidden payload, and recovering it if possible. Presence of hidden payloads is typically detected by a binary classifier. Read More


Studies show that refining real-world categories into semantic subcategories contributes to better image modeling and classification. Previous image sub-categorization work relying on labeled images and WordNet's hierarchy is not only labor-intensive, but also restricted to classify images into NOUN subcategories. To tackle these problems, in this work, we exploit general corpus information to automatically select and subsequently classify web images into semantic rich (sub-)categories. Read More


This paper reviews the causes of discomfort in viewing stereoscopic content. These include objective factors, such as misaligned images, as well as subjective factors, such as excessive disparity. Different approaches to the measurement of visual discomfort are also reviewed, in relation to the underlying physiological and psychophysical processes. Read More


The emergence of smart Wi-Fi APs (Access Point), which are equipped with huge storage space, opens a new research area on how to utilize these resources at the edge network to improve users' quality of experience (QoE) (e.g., a short startup delay and smooth playback). Read More


Motion compensation is a fundamental technology in video coding to remove the temporal redundancy between video frames. To further improve the coding efficiency, sub-pel motion compensation has been utilized, which requires interpolation of fractional samples. The video coding standards usually adopt fixed interpolation filters that are derived from the signal processing theory. Read More
