This paper describes a new encoder control method for multiview video plus depth coding. Since large parts of a multiview scenery are present in more than one of the captured video sequences, a depth-aware encoder control is introduced, which identifies those regions based on given depth maps and omits the coding of the residual signal for those regions. Experimental results indicate that bit rate reductions of about 5-9 %, depending on the bit rate, can be achieved for the 2-view case at a constant subjective quality.
