A transcoding robust data hiding method for image communication applications

We present a data embedding method for image communication applications. Our goal is to implement novel multimedia applications such as multi-language captions, interactive programming and title specific features over the existing image communication channel. To this aim, we present a data embedding method for JPEG images which has the desired degree of robustness to transcoding or bitrate adjustments that may take place in the communication channel. The described system is designed for JPEG images but can be extended to MPEG systems.
