Embed [l.sub.uv] to [p.sub.i] with max PF, namely [M.sup.L](=[l.sub.uv]) = p 10.
After using the generalized difference expansion algorithm to embed information into the pixel blocks, the mean value of the block pixels should be unchanged, and that is a fairly strict requirement.
The difference expansion watermarking algorithm presented in the previous paper uses the difference between the pixels in the image to embed the watermark.
Then use the difference expansion method to embed a one-digit watermark into [A.sub.1] and [B.sub.1].
In addition, the maximum embedding capacity of this method in a 4 x 4 sub-block is 16-digit watermark, which can embed one-digit more watermark information than the generalized differential expansion watermark algorithm.
Then, based on the watermark information to be hided, properly select the first pixel blocks in the front of the sequence (assume the first k blocks) and embed the watermarks successively;
STEP5: Based on the above method, use the improved generalized differential expansion algorithm to embed the watermark for any selected smooth block [A.sub.i] (0[less than or equal to]i[less than or equal to]k).
In the end, the war was far too short to be a test of the embed program.
When I contemplate the success or failure of the embed program, I think about those briefings in Qatar, at the Pentagon's press office, not the numbing recitation from the podium, but those moments when a questioner, with a newspaper or television transcript clutched in one hand, refuted a bit of stilted Pentagonese by saying, "But an embed with the 3rd I.D." or "ah embed with the 1st Marine Division reported ...
