Recently, several method have been proposed to capture 3D shapes of a moving object at a high frame rate. One of promising approach to reconstruct a 3D shape is a projector-camera system that projects structured light pattern. One of the problem of this approach is that it has difficulty to obtain texture simultaneously because the texture is interfered by the illumination from the projector. The system proposed in this paper overcomes this issue by separating the light wavelength for texture and shape. The pattern is projected by using infrared light and the texture is captured by using visible light. If the cameras for infrared and visible lights are placed at different position, it causes the misalignment between texture and shape, which degrades the quality of the textured 3D model. Therefore, we developed a multi-band camera that acquires both visible and infrared lights from a single viewpoint. Moreover, to reconstruct a 3D shape using multiple wavelengths of light, namely multiple colors, an infrared pattern projector is developed to generate a multi-band grid pattern. Additionally, a simple method to calibrate the system is proposed by using a fixed grid pattern. Finally, we show the textured 3D shapes captured by the experimental system.
