Video Cloaking

The goal of this project is to build a system which hides extra data within a video transmission. With only a minor or non-perceptible degradation in the quality of the transmitted video, another lower rate video or other data payload can be sent over the same channel as the primary video. The usefulness of the channel is thus increased. During this project, a video decoder for displaying the primary video and extracting the extra payload will be created. This decoder will operate on a standard consumer-grade video playback device. Pixelstream Communications, the partner organization, will obtain a prototype program for demonstrating their video cloaking technology to future investors. The interns will obtain experience with multimedia application and communications system development.
