The distribution of multimedia has revolutionized the web technology at very fast pace. Duplication of computerized information are created and conveyed through the web technology. Unlawful acts, for example, tampering, forging, copyright isolations and frauds on multimedia data are becoming very common in the society. Digital watermarking is one such innovation that has been produced to shield multimedia data from illegal manipulations. The advancement of technical solutions in view of watermarking method for copyright assurance has been a subject of active research amid the most recent decade. In this paper, hybridization Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) and Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) using redundant wavelet is proposed for robust digital video watermarking. The results of combining the two transform using redundant wavelets shows that the performance of proposed video watermarking scheme is enhanced and satisfies the requirement of imperceptibility. The presented results also showed that the scheme has the capacity to withstand an assortment of video processing attacks.
