Project Description

This is "The Multimedia Signal Processing and Security Lab", short WaveLab, website. We are a research group at the Artificial Intelligence and Human Interfaces (AIHI) Department of the University of Salzburg led by Andreas Uhl. Our research is focused on Visual Data Processing and associated security questions. Most of our work is currently concentrated on Biometrics, Media Forensics and Media Security, Medical Image and Video Analysis, and application oriented fundamental research in digital humanities, individualised aquaculture and sustainable wood industry.

Structure-Preserving State-of-The-Art Video Watermarking (StructWM)


Project Description:

StructWM (FFG Bridge project 834165) is a project on developing techniques for robust watermarking, specifically focused to the two coding options in H.264, i.e. CABAC and CAVLC, where the aim is to mostly preserve size and file structure of the cover medium. This project is conducted in cooperation with SONY DADC Austria.
