This paper proposes a fast mode decision algorithm for 3D High Efficiency Video Coding (3D-HEVC) depth intra coding. In the current 3D-HEVC design, it is observed that for most of the cases, full Rate-Distortion (RD) cost search of Bi-partition mode could be skipped since most coding units (CUs) of depth map are very flat or smooth while Bi-partition modes… CONTINUE READING
