In these days, we can see digital signages in many places, for example, inside stations or trains with the distribution of attractive promotional video clips. Users can easily get additional information related to such video clips via mobile devices such as smartphone by using some websites for retrieval. However, such retrieval is time-consuming and sometimes leads users to incorrect information. Therefore, it is desirable that the additional information can be directly obtained from the video clips. We implement a suitable digital watermarking method on smartphone to extract watermarks from video clips on signages in real-time. The experimental results show that the proposed method correctly extracts watermarks in a second on smartphone.
