Infrared Color Night-Vision Security Camera

Sharp developed and released for commercial use the LZ0P420A infrared color night-vision camera, the first product of its kind in the industry*1 that allows video capture in zero-lux settings.
This product employs a CCD*2 jointly developed by Sharp and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). By irradiating objects with near-infrared rays, smooth color video can be captured even in settings of zero lux—in other words, pitch-dark settings.

As of November 4, 2014; for infrared color night-vision cameras using a single-sensor (one-chip CCD) system supporting HD 720 (1280 x 720 pixels) and 30-fps video capture. Based on Sharp research.
This camera's night-vision image sensor (CCD) is based on color night-vision technology developed by AIST (announced by AIST on February 8, 2011 and December 3, 2012). The image sensor (CCD) was developed jointly by Sharp Corporation and AIST (announced by AIST on May 14, 2014).
