The challenge to H.265/HEVC multiview video coding (MVC) is its extremely high computational complexity. This paper presents the development and implementation of a scalable massively parallel fast search algorithm to significantly reduce the computational cost of motion and disparity estimation over the current best available GPU full block matching and sub optimal CPU fast search algorithms by a factor up to 2.4 and 8.4, respectively.
