Speech Watermarking Based on Coding of the Harmonic Phase

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNAI,volume 8854)

Abstract

This paper presents a new speech watermarking technique using harmonic modelling of the speech signal and coding of the harmonic phase. We use a representation of the instantaneous harmonic phase which allows straightforward manipulation of its values to embed the digital watermark. The technique converts each harmonic into a communication channel, whose performance is analysed in terms of distortion and BER. The developed tests show that with a simple coding scheme a bit rate of 300bps can be achieved with minimal perceptual distortion and almost zero BER.
