In this paper, we propose a system generating free viewpoint video using multiple cameras and a PC-cluster in real-time. Our system first reconstructing a shape model of objects by the visual cone intersection method, secondly transforming the shape model represented in terms of a voxel form into a triangular patch form, thirdly coloring vertexes of triangular patches, lastly displaying the shape color model from the virtual viewpoint directed by a user. We describe details of our system and show some experi mental results.
