How is that possible? I fail to see how one can obtain true color images from a monochromal light source.
Maybe you mean the Color Night Mode
I saw a demo of this from a Japanese company in maybe 2011. It was a CCD with IR and it was effectively color IR.
They said they were 18 months away from a production product. Time, the resolution and the expected price killed the interest from our side (previous life).
I've been looking out for it since but never seen it - admittedly I lost their name :(
The first demo I saw was fitted to a car and doing 30fps.
They called it color IR. - no surprise :)
Saw stills of the Sony CNM a few months ago.
I find some info about "Color Infrared Camera"

new color filter that separates near-infrared light into red, green and blue lights.
The filter is not made of an organic material but an inorganic material
