Recently, three Dimension (3D) multimedia technology has grown over a wide range, where the 3D used in many applications such as medical, television, cinema, game, education, etc. The developments also include the computer network, these evaluations make the store and distribute the media very easy and at the same time very critical, where any person can access these data and manipulate it or redistribute it with illegal copyrights. Therefore, it is necessary to find a watermarking technique to keep the security of these media. 3D multimedia, especially 3D Video contains a huge amount of data, trying achievement copyright protection for all these data consumes the computation, and slow down securing process, thus 3D video key frame extraction process is necessary. In this paper, the histogram-based key frame extraction technique is applied to extract essential and important data of the 3D video. A modified invisible, and blind watermark system is suggested in this research for 3D Video copyrights and authentication protection using Dual-Tree Complex Wavelet Transform (DTCWT). The experiment results show that 3D video key extraction system has given high compression ratio ( from 4:1 to 5:1) and the protection system could put an invisible watermark while keeping the quality of the 3D video, as well as the proposed watermark system, is robust where the watermark extracted successfully after applying a different types of attack.
