Abstract: Advancement of Internet services and design of image and video capturing devices along with various storage technologies has made video piracy an issue. Asserting the originality of digital data and having a copyright on the file is always a challenging task. Digital watermarking is a technique of embedding secret information known as watermarks within image or video file. This can be used for authentication and ownership verification purposes. This paper presents an analysis of mobile deployment of various video watermarking algorithms. The analysis is carried out using the quality parameters like PSNR, time of execution and power consumption. The goal of video watermarking method, implemented on a mobile phone, is to enhance security and to achieve copyright protection for the video files that are captured using a mobile phone. The video file is applied with three different watermarking methods, DCT, LSB and bitstream. These methods are compared for their performance using the parameters PSNR, power consumed and time of execution. It is observed that, the proposed bitstream method gives better performance compared to other methods when evaluated based on these parameters.

Keywords: discrete cosine transform; DCT; least significant bit; LSB; bitstream; watermarking; copyright protection.
