Paper Abstract

The enormous economic incentives for safeguarding intellectual property in the digital domain have made forensic watermarking a research topic of considerable interest. However, a recent examination of some of the leading product development efforts reveals that at present there is no effective watermarking implementation that addresses both the fidelity and security requirements of high definition digital cinema. If Boeing Digital Cinema (BDC, a business unit of Boeing Integrated Defense Systems) is to succeed in using watermarking as a deterrent to the unauthorized capture and distribution of high value cinematic material, the technology must be robust, transparent, asymmetric in its insertion/detection costs, and compatible with all the other elements of Boeing's multi-layered security system, including its compression, encryption, and key management services.
