Ganz THRU Series Claims to Increase Visibility in Adverse Environments

By: John Honovich, Published on Feb 10, 2010

GANZ has released a camera series that claims to increase visibility in adverse environment. GANZ refers to this as their "MIST" technology (see datasheet for details).

GANZ explanation of how they do it:

"The camera's dynamic range control (DRC) function detects and measures image intensity on the screen. By digitally adjusting color and contrast, poor quality images caused by environmental factors are automatically corrected."

The cameras are analog only and are generally available. The series offer 2 models: a color and day/night version with MSRPs respectively of $433 and $563 USD.

According to GANZ, the MIST mode can be turned off and it does not activate until it recognizes the adverse weather conditions. 

We have not tested it so we cannot comment on its performance. However, readers should be aware that the images provided on GANZ's website are labelled for 'illustration purposes only'. This is misleading as the true measure and the best representation are actual pictures from the camera - not 'illustrations'.
