Watermarking techniques applied to H264/AVC video standard
Video watermarking describes the process of embedding information in video to satisfy applications such as the protection of intellectual property and the control of video authentication. In this field, researchers orient their investigations towards the new video standard H264/AVC which is increasingly used because of the coding efficiency it provides comparing to the previous standards. The different modules of this standard are exploited to embed watermark while responding to the application demands in terms of fragility or robustness to certain attacks and in terms of maintaining video quality and video bit rate. The aim of this paper is to give a global vision on the H264/AVC and to present some robust and fragile watermarking techniques applied to this video standard.
