The RDM-QIM algorithm has been proposed as a solution to the gain attack in QIM-based data hiding schemes. Several data hiding applications, such as broadcasting monitoring and live performance watermarking, requires a real-time multi-channel behavior. While Digital Signal Processors (DSP) have been used for implementing these schemes achieving real-time performance for audio signal processing, FPGAs offer the posibility of fully exploiting the inherent parallelism of this type of algorithms for more demanding applications. This letter presents an efficient FPGA implementation of RDM-QIM algorithm that overcomes a DSP-based implementation for more than two orders of magnitude and allows real-time multi-channel behavior.
