ICIP 2015 : Special Session

IETR/INSA of Rennes and University of Montpellier organized a special session at ICIP 2015 on security topic.

Privacy and Security in the new Generation Video Coding

The new generation video coding systems define new tools to efficiently compress video contents at high frame rate, high resolution (4K and 8K), high bit depth and wide colour gamut. The latest video coding standard, High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), was finalized in January 2013 and its scalable (SHVC) and Multi-View (MV-HEVC) extensions in July 2014. The HEVC standard and its extensions are expected to be adopted in the upcoming years as solution for different emerging video services including 4K live video streaming, 4K and 3D broadcast and IP TV, …

Privacy and security of these contents is a hot research topic and such solutions should be carefully designed to meet with both security and complexity requirements. Complexity requirement poses significant power and performance challenges for battery-operated devices such as smartphones and tablets, as well as for real-time and low delay applications such as video conferencing. 

This special session will focus on efficient encryption and watermarking algorithms for video content coded in the HEVC standard and its extensions. This session includes, but not limited to, topics related to joint compression-encryption, joint compression-watermarking and selective video encryption solutions in the new generation video coding systems (HEVC, SHVC, MV-HEVC and 3D-HEVC). In addition, this special session gathers researchers from academia and industry with interdisciplinary background including encryption, watermarking, video coding, optimized algorithms as well as multimedia security and privacy.
