1. A system for encoding of digital watermark information in a signal, comprising:

  • at least one processor for processing data, said system configured to use said processor in performing functions for following elements;

    a window identifier for using time base alignment to identify sample windows in the signal to enable aligning watermark information amplitude values with sample windows;

    an interval calculator for determining a quantization interval of the sample window, where the quantization interval is used to quantize normalized window samples; and

    a sampler for normalizing the sample window to provide normalized samples, where the normalized samples conform to a limited range of values that are proportional to real sample values and comprise a representation of the real sample values with a resolution higher than the real range of values, and where the normalized values can be divided by the quantization interval into distinct quantization levels.
