Identifying the source camera of images and videos has gained significant importance in multimedia forensics. It allows tracing back data to their creator, thus enabling to solve copyright infringement cases and expose the authors of hideous crimes. In this paper, we focus on the problem of camera model identification for video sequences, that is, given a video under analysis, detecting the camera model used for its acquisition. To this purpose, we develop two different CNN-based camera model identification methods, working in a novel multi-modal scenario. Differently from mono-modal methods, which use only the visual or audio information from the investigated video to tackle the identification task, the proposed multi-modal methods jointly exploit audio and visual information. We test our proposed methodologies on the well-known Vision dataset, which collects almost 2000 video sequences belonging to different devices. Experiments are performed, considering native videos directly acquired by their acquisition devices and videos uploaded on social media platforms, such as YouTube and WhatsApp. The achieved results show that the proposed multi-modal approaches significantly outperform their mono-modal counterparts, representing a valuable strategy for the tackled problem and opening future research to even more challenging scenarios.

Abstract

Identifying the source camera of images and videos has gained significant importance in multimedia forensics. It allows tracing back data to their creator, thus enabling to solve copyright infringement cases and expose the authors of hideous crimes. In this paper, we focus on the problem of camera model identification for video sequences, that is, given a video under analysis, detecting the camera model used for its acquisition. To this purpose, we develop two different CNN-based camera model identification methods, working in a novel multi-modal scenario. Differently from mono-modal methods, which use only the visual or audio information from the investigated video to tackle the identification task, the proposed multi-modal methods jointly exploit audio and visual information. We test our proposed methodologies on the well-known Vision dataset, which collects almost 2000 video sequences belonging to different devices. Experiments are performed, considering native videos directly acquired by their acquisition devices and videos uploaded on social media platforms, such as YouTube and WhatsApp. The achieved results show that the proposed multi-modal approaches significantly outperform their mono-modal counterparts, representing a valuable strategy for the tackled problem and opening future research to even more challenging scenarios.
