Best Poster award at the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture Research Symposium (FEARS) 2018.

(06-02-2018) Hannes Mareen from IDLab has received a Best Poster award at the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture Research Symposium (FEARS) 2018.

The poster titled "Multimedia Forensics: Identifying Digital Pirates using a Novel Watermarking Technique" presents a novel video watermarking approach to identify digital pirates when they illegally distribute a video. The main novelty lies in the representation of the watermark. That is, the watermark is represented by ordinary small mistakes made during video compression. Therefore, the watermark is invisible and hard to delete. Hannes Mareen created this technique in the context of his master's thesis, supervised by prof. Peter Lambert, Glenn Van Wallendael and Johan De Praeter. Currently, he is further investigating the watermarking technique as an SB PhD fellow with the financial support of the Research Foundation – Flanders (FWO).
