    TrueSense imaging has announced their first CMOS detector. Kodak used to have a CMOS division, was sold off separately from the CCD Division that became TrueSense.
    TrueSense makes Color, Monochrome, and visible+Near-IR (no IR cut filter) detectors. This new CMOS sensor is available with a standard RGB color mosaic filter, and in monochrome Visible+IR. It would be easy to make a monochrome visible-only camera, just use a standard IR absorbing filter in the camera. Any company using this detector could easily offer a color and monochrome version of the camera, as Kodak used to do 20 years ago and as Leica just started doing this year.
    I have the first monochrome visible+IR Kodak, bought 20 years ago.
    There is evaluation hardware and software available...

    The sensor also incorporates a "global shutter", meaning an all-electronic shutter. However- a traditional shutter improves dynamic range by 10dB.
