A Low-Complexity Mobile Watermarking Scheme Resisting Scale Distortions
Abstract: In mobile environment, a low-complexity is the significant feature because the mobile device has very limited resources due to power consumption. In this paper, we propose a low-complexity watermarking scheme for mobile device. We apply the minimum average correlation energy Mellin radial harmonic (MACE-MRH) correlation filter to watermark detection. By the scale tolerance property of MACE-MRH correlation filter, the proposed watermark detector can be robust to scaling attacks. Empirical evidence from a large database of test images indicates outperforming performance of the proposed method.
