This study explores the covert transmission of surveillance videos using QAM (quadrature amplitude modulation) constellations. By analyzing transmission strategies used in surveillance video systems, we adopt KL divergence as the constraint for covertness performance and mutual information to characterize transmission rates. Utilizing the Taylor series expansion method, we simplify the complex integral calculations of mutual information and KL divergence into summation operations. This simplification not only reduces computational complexity but also ensures precise calculations. Theoretical derivations establish the necessary conditions for the covert transmission of surveillance videos, optimizing modulation probabilities for constellation points. Experimental results and simulation validations demonstrate the superior performance of our proposed method in terms of both information transfer and precision.
