Comparative Analysis of Digital Watermarking in Discrete Wavelet Transform and Mojette Transform

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 324)


Watermarking is the technique to insert some kind of ownership information in any digital media like image, audio, or video. This enables the owner of the media to claim the ownership against any illegal use or claim of false ownership. In this paper, the watermarking is performed with gray image in transform domain to compare discrete wavelet transform (DWT) and discrete Mojette transform based on the quality measures like peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR) and mean square error (MSE). The proposed work also deals with a review of the various attacks on the watermarked image to alter the watermark, to remove, and to degrade the quality of the watermark in both cases.
