What is single-frame watermarking?

Single-frame watermarking in videos refers to the process of embedding a watermark into individual frames of a video. A watermark is a piece of digital information, such as a logo, text, or an image, that is superimposed onto the video to identify its source, ownership, or to indicate copyright information. The primary purpose of watermarking is to deter unauthorized use, distribution, or copyright infringement of the video content.

There are various techniques used for single-frame watermarking in videos, including:

1. Spatial Domain Watermarking: In this technique, the watermark is directly embedded into the pixel values of the video frames. It alters specific pixel values to encode the watermark information.

2. Frequency Domain Watermarking: This technique involves transforming the video frames into a frequency domain (e.g., using Fourier or Wavelet transforms) and then embedding the watermark in the transformed domain.

3. Least Significant Bit (LSB) Embedding: LSB embedding is a common and simple technique used to hide the watermark bits in the least significant bits of the video frame's pixel values.

4. Spread Spectrum Watermarking: This method spreads the watermark across multiple frames or regions within a frame to increase robustness against attacks.

The process of single-frame watermarking typically involves the following steps:

1. Selection of the watermark: The watermark to be embedded in the video is chosen, which could be a logo, text, or any other identifying mark.

2. Embedding: The selected watermark is inserted into the video frames using the chosen watermarking technique.

3. Watermark detection: To verify the authenticity of the video, the watermark can be extracted from the frames during playback or post-processing.
