This paper proposes a fast algorithm particularly for the most computational complexity part in a Multiview Video Coding (MVC) system-uni-directional and bi-directional predictions. Based on the stereo-motion consistency constraint, an iterative search strategy with adaptive refinement search range adjustment technique is proposed for uni-directional prediction, in which motion and disparity vectors can be achieved jointly. Furthermore, an efficient early termination is proposed for bi-directional prediction on the basis of the analysis of multiview video sequences. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed fast algorithm.
