Fundamentals and Applications of Hardcopy Communication
This book presents covert, semi-covert and overt techniques for communication over printed media by modifying images, texts or barcodes within the document. Basic and advanced techniques are discussed aimed to modulate information into images, texts and barcodes. Conveying information over printed media can be useful for content authentication, author copyright, information and piracy product deterrent, side information for marketing, among other applications. Practical issues are discussed and experiments are provided to evaluate competitive approaches for hard-copy communication. This book is a useful resource for researchers, practitioners and graduate students in the field of hard-copy communication by providing the fundamentals, basic and advanced techniques as examples of approaches to address the hard-copy media distortions and particularities. Prof. Joceli Mayer, Ph.D., is currently an Associate Professor at Department of Electrical Engineering from Federal University of Santa Catarina, Brazil. He got his Ph.D. degree from the University of California at Santa Cruz in Computer Engineering, CSE-UCSC. He is currently an IEEE Senior Member. His interests include digital signal processing applications, image processing and computational vision, speech coding and VOIP systems, signal detection and watermarking of image, video, speech, audio and printed documents. He is an author on more than 100 publications. He also has contributed with solutions in DSP to the industry partners (Hewlett Packard, Intelbras, AGM, Pixeon, Amplivox). Director of the Laboratory of Research on Digital Signal Processing - LPDS. Paulo Vinicius Koerich Borges, is a Senior Research Scientist and currently leads the Robotics Perception Team at the CSIRO's Autonomous Systems Laboratory, in Brisbane, Australia. He received the B.E. and M.Sc. degrees in electrical engineering from Federal University of Santa Catarina (UFSC), Brazil, in 2002 and 2004, respectively. In 2007 he received his Ph.D. degree from Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL) and UFSC, followed by a Post-Doc in 2008 at QMUL, before moving to CSIRO in 2009. In 2012-13, he held a visiting scientist appointment at ETH Zurich in Switzerland. His current research focuses on computer vision applied to robotics, multi-sensor information fusion and image processing. Aside from his position at CSIRO, Dr. Borges is also an Adjunct Senior Lecturer with the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at the University of Queensland, Australia. Dr. Steven J. Simske is an HP Fellow and Director of the Secure Workflow Technologies in HP Labs, where he oversees the development of document ecosystem and security solutions, brand protection, security printing, education, print production, 3D printing and life science research. Earlier at HP Labs, Simske worked on medical signal processing for portable medicine, including novel means of reducing biological noise in electrocardiograms (ECGs). He is a Fellow and current President-Elect in the Society for Imaging Science & Technology (IS&T), a major international engineering society in the field of printing and imaging. He represents HP on the World Economic Forum Global Agenda Councils on Illicit Economy and the Future of Electronics. He is an author on more than 400 publications and more than 130 US patents. He recently authored the book 'Meta-Algorithmics' (Wiley & Sons, 2013). He has a BS (Marquette University) and an MS (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) in Biomedical Engineering, a PhD and Post-Doc in Electrical Engineering (University of Colorado) along with a Post-Doc in Aerospace Engineering (University of Colorado). He is currently the head of the Advisory Board for the Colorado State University Biomedical Engineering program.
