Compression is the most common application that all forms of multimedia data undergo. Lossy nature of the compression due to the use of quantizers should be taken into account by the watermarking technique employed. In this paper, we present a data hiding scheme that incorporates the embedding with the quantization of lossy compression. We show that embedder-detector sets marking use of compression scheme's quantization characteristics have better payload and lower compression bit rates. We also optimized the system parameters that maximize the hiding rate at different compression levels.
