This paper presents a new approach for non-blind watermarking of still gray level images in contourlet domain. It uses the Human Visual System (HVS) characteristic, and an innovative entropy based approach to create an efficient watermarking scheme. It decomposes original image in contourlet domain in four hierarchical levels and watermarks it with a logo image, which is scrambled thru a well-known PN-sequence. A novel entropy-based method is developed for selection of contourlet coefficients that provides an…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
