Method and system for watermark detection

Image Number 4 for United States Patent #7133536.

A system and method of detecting and authenticating a watermark on a document such as a check which is supposed to include a watermark having known characteristics to verify the authenticity of the document. A digitized image of the document is stored and processed through transformation which generates a frequency distribution. That frequency distribution is processed to determine one or more harmonic compared to a stored value associated with the document to determine that a watermark exists and it is the correct watermark.
