IR LED\'s for CCTV cameras needed

I'm looking for a good place to find some IR LED's that will respond well to a CCTV camera around 840 nM I'm using 920 nM led's now with not much luck

The camera uses a CCD sensor and not a vidicon, yes? You can find all types of IR LEDs at Digikey.com. I've found some Osram 880nm units here...

You can try Epitex IR leds. They have the widest variety of wavelength and highest power that I am aware of. I heard that most CCTV cameras have peak sensitivity near 760 nm. The trade-off is usually between responsiveness vs. visible red light. At 760, 810 & even 880 nm there is some visible red depending on the LED. Epitex is distributed by Marubeni in the U.S.
