The recent advances in Image Based Rendering (IBR) has pioneered a new technology, free view point television, in which TV-viewers select freely the viewing position and angle by the application of IBR on the transmitted multi-view video. In this paper, exhaustive tests were carried out to conclude to the best possible watermarking for free-view television. The watermark should not only be resistant to common video processing and multi-view video processing operations, it should also be extracted from a generated video for an arbitrary view.

Free-view watermarking for free-view television
Koz, Alper; Cigla, Cevahir; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2006-10-11)
The recent advances in Image Based Rendering (IBR) has pioneered a new technology, free-view television, in which TV-viewers select freely the viewing position and angle by the application of IBR on the transmitted multi-view video. Noting that the TV-viewer might also record a personal video for this arbitrarily selected view and misuse this content, it is apparent that copyright and copy protection problems also exist and should be solved for free-view TV. In this paper, we focus on this problem by propos...
WATERMARKING FOR IMAGE-BASED RENDERING VIA HOMOGRAPHY-BASED VIRTUAL CAMERA LOCATION ESTIMATION
Koz, Alper; Cigla, Cevahir; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2008-10-15)
The recent advances in Image Based Rendering (IBR) have pioneered freely determining the viewing position and angle in a scene from multi-view video. Noting that a person could also record a personal video for this arbitrarily selected view and misuse this content, apparently, copyright and copy protection problems also exist and should be solved for IBR applications. In our recent work [1], we have proposed a watermarking method, which embeds the watermark pattern into every frame of multi-view video and e...
WATERMARKING FOR DEPTH-IMAGE-BASED RENDERING
Halici, Eren; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2009-11-10)
In this paper, a novel watermarking method for depth-image-based rendering methods employed in free viewpoint television systems is proposed. The proposed method uses a correlation-based approach; where a watermark pattern is warped for each different view of the multi-view source video, and embedded to the texture maps of those views in spatial domain. First, the projection matrix of the 2D rendered image is estimated; then, using this matrix, a rendered watermark is formed by warping the original watermar...
A novel optical flow-based representation for temporal video segmentation
Akpınar, Samet; Alpaslan, Ferda Nur (2017-01-01)
Temporal video segmentation is a field of multimedia research enabling us to temporally split video data into semantically coherent scenes. In order to develop methods challenging temporal video segmentation, detecting scene boundaries is one of the more widely used approaches. As a result, representation of temporal information becomes important. We propose a new temporal video segment representation to formalize video scenes as a sequence of temporal motion change information. The idea here is that some s...
