We developed a 3D modeling and displaying system for volume communication, which consists of a set of cameras and a PC cluster, and evaluated on both LCD and omni-directional displays. In this paper, we propose a parallel voxel coloring method for accelerating the 3D modeling process. By using a system consisting of five cameras and a six-node PC cluster, it was possible to model and display a real-world object at interactive frame rate. We also investigated the use of an omni-directional
