Paper Abstract

Now-a-days Multimedia data can be easily replicated and the copyright is not legally protected. Cryptography does not allow the use of digital data in its original form and once the data is decrypted, it is no longer protected. Here we have proposed a new double protected digital image watermarking algorithm, which can embed the watermark image blocks into the adjacent regions of the host image itself based on their blocks similarity coefficient which is robust to various noise effects like Poisson noise, Gaussian noise, Random noise and thereby provide double security from various noises and hackers. As instrumentation application requires a much accurate data, the watermark image which is to be extracted back from the watermarked image must be immune to various noise effects. Our results provide better extracted image compared to the present/existing techniques and in addition we have done resizing the same for various displays. Adaptive resizing for various size displays is being experimented wherein we crop the required information in a frame, zoom it for a large display or resize for a small display using a threshold value and in either cases background is not given much importance but it is only the fore-sight object which gains importance which will surely be helpful in performing surgeries.
