    Development has been going on for quite some time, as this 2011 video says.

    The model received the name LZ0P420A. This is the first infrared night video camera on the market that can see colors in complete darkness. The camera is equipped with a CCD sensor developed jointly by Sharp and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). The matrix uses near-infrared light.

    Resolution is 1280 x 720 pixels, frame rate - 30 per second. Since only one sensor is used, the cameras are very compact. In addition, the camera has a standard HD-SDI * 4, and this will make it easy to integrate it into existing video surveillance systems. It can be used not only against thieves, but also for monitoring patients in hospitals and nursing homes.
