Abstract: In this paper, 2-level DWT and 3-level DWT is presented and both are compared in frequency domain with quality metrics. In video watermarking, a source video is divided into number of frames and only one frame is considered. That frame is divided into 3-level DWT in these frames high bands of coefficients are selected to implant secret video/watermark logo into the frames which is applicable to all frames in a source video. This will give the assurance to invisibility for HVS. After embedding, watermarking detection is done with the same procedure. Finally comparative analysis is done with the experimental results.

Keywords: Video watermarking, 2-level DWT, 3-level DWT, source video, watermark logo, secret video, PSNR, MSE and SSIM.
