Quantization Based Robust Image Watermarking in DCT-SVD Domain

A. Abdulfetah, X. Sun and H. Yang

In this study, we proposed a robust quantization based digital image watermarking for copy right protection in DCT-SVD domain. The proposed watermarking algorithm which combines both merits of the algorithm based on Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) and algorithm based on Singular Value Decomposition (SVD). The watermark is embedded by applying a quantization index modulation process on largest singular values of image blocks in the DCT domain. To avoid visual degradation of watermarked image, we have enhanced a model to take into consideration blocks statistics of the host image. Watermark detection is efficient and blind in the sense only the quantization parameters but not the original image is required. Experimental results show that the proposed method is more robust than SVD and DCT-SVD methods.
