A NOVEL DIGITAL IMAGE WATERMARKING SCHEME USING BIORTHOGONAL WAVELETS

Abstract
Copyright protection is considered as an issue of vital significance owing to the escalating utilization of internet and effortless copying, tampering and distribution of digital images. Digital watermarking methodologies are looked upon as a competent tool for safeguarding the digital images from copyright infringements issues. A number of researches in existence deal with copyright protection with the aid of watermarking. Recently, wavelet domain based watermarking ap- proaches are gaining popularity in watermarking researches. In this paper we have proposed a novel watermarking scheme for copyright protection in digital images. The watermarking is performed in wave- let domain using bi-orthogonal wavelet transform. As the proposed approach is non-blind, it requires original image for extracting the watermark. The watermark image is a binary image. The watermark image is embedded in the HH sub-band of the wavelet transformed original image. A Good quality of watermarked image is assured through the proposed scheme from the higher PSNR values which is evident from experimental result.
