M.A. Dryuchenko, Associate Professor of the Department of Information Procession and Protection Technologies of the VSU Faculty of Computer Sciences, has won the “Start” programme competition of the Foundation for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises in Science and Technology.
The “START” programme competition comprises the traditional fields: information technologies, medicine, advanced materials and technologies, tools and hardware systems, and biotechnologies. Grants are to be awarded for projects aimed at developing and mastering the production of new goods, products, technologies or services using the results of scientific, technical and technological research.
M.A. Dryuchenko’s project on “Developing the universal technologies and software for creating digital watermarks in order to monitor the use and distribution of multi-format web content” involves the development of the software for implementing new technologies of creating security-enhanced digital watermarks for the purpose of identifying and protecting multimedia objects, such as images, audio- and video-files of a low and high resolution and dynamic range.
The project will result in an IT solution and software for creating and using digital watermarks and identification numbers of objects in order to protect the objects in the form of digital content (audio and video multimedia files, still images, etc.) and prevent forgery, copying and unauthorized use.
