Lightweight forensic video watermarking to enable premium content consumption on mobile devices

Content owners are reluctant to deliver premium content to open devices due to the risk of piracy and the corresponding potential for loss of revenue. To lift this deadlock, there is increasing interest in incorporating watermarking-based tracing mechanisms onto mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets.

The scarcity of resources calls for innovative watermarking paradigms. In this demo, we will exemplify how two-step bitstream video watermarking could be exploited to address this challenge and why it needs to be adapted to cope with the characteristics of HTTP adaptive streaming.
