The recent advances in Image Based Rendering (IBR) has pioneered a new technology, free view point television, in which TV-viewers select freely the viewing position and angle by the application of IBR on the transmitted multi-view video. In this paper, exhaustive tests were carried out to conclude to the best possible watermarking for free-view television. The watermark should not only be resistant to common video processing and multi-view video processing operations, it should also be extracted from a generated video for an arbitrary view.
