Abstract:     Apparatus and methods are provided for encoding, storing and decoding auxiliary information on an analog source signal in a way which has minimal impact on the human perception of the source information when the source signal is applied to an appropriate output device, such as a speaker or a display monitor. The autocorrelation function of a host signal is modulated according to the value of an auxiliary information signal by adding a host modifying signal to the host signal. The auxiliary signal is decoded by generating the autocorrelation function of the encoded signal and extracting the auxiliary signal according to well-known signal extraction techniques.

First Claim:
Show all 27 claims
What is claimed is:     1. A method for encoding information symbols onto an analog host signal, comprising the steps of:
  • determining a short-term autocorrelation function value of said host signal;
  • determining a value of an auxiliary information signal containing an information symbol;
  • calculating a value of the short-term autocorrelation function of said host signal corresponding to said determined value of said auxiliary information signal according to a predefined relationship between auxiliary information signal value and host signal autocorrelation value;
  • developing a host modifying signal for modifying said host signal such that the short-term autocorrelation function value of the modified host signal will correspond to said calculated value; and
  • modifying said host signal with said host modifying signal.
