Videos about the watermarking technology developed by the UOC

Recently patented in the US, a watermarking technology has been developed by the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC), which allows to embed extra information imperceptible for the user in audio and video signals. This information can be recovered from a mobile device for several purposes, such as marketing or intellectual property.

Developed by researchers within the KISON group, this new technology offers several advantages, such as higher capacity for embedding data in audio and video signals, and higher fidelity and robustness even under adverse conditions.

Made in collaboration with MinifilmsTV, the videos explain how the watermarking technology works, what innovation it offers regarding existing solutions and the versatility of uses it offers.
