Project Description

This is "The Multimedia Signal Processing and Security Lab", short WaveLab, website. We are a research group at the Computer Sciences Department of the University of Salzburg headed by Andreas Uhl. The short name "WaveLab" already indicates that wavelets are among our favorite tools - we have 15 years of experience in this area. Our research is focused on Multimedia Security including Watermarking, Image and Video Compression, Medical Image Classification, and Biometrics.
   

Adaptive Streaming of Secure Scalable Wavelet-based Video (ASSSV)

 

Project Description:

ASSSV (FWF project P19159) is a joint project with Hermann Hellwagner from the Information Technology Department (ITEC) at the University of Klagenfurt. The Salzburg branch is working on video encryption and watermarking schemes which are aimed to be suited for wavelet-based scalable video codecs and for H.264 SVC. The Klagenfurt branch is working on streaming protocols for scalable video and corresponding adaptation strategies for varying network properties or user preferences. Obviously, the overall aim is to result in methodologies to support "Adaptive Streaming of Secure Scalable Wavelet-based Video". Here is the project description @ Klagenfurt University.
