A problem of spectral narrowband 3D imaging in the visible spectral range is considered. A double-channel acousto-optical spectral system is developed to acquire stereoscopic images in cross-polarized optical beams. A prototype is presented. Some examples of stereoimages detected with the instrument are presented and a 3D image reconstructed on their basis is described.
