The Ganz® THRU Vision Series of cameras and lenses were engineered to sharpen and increase visibility in conditions where fog, haze, smog, sand or rain impede outdoor video surveillance. The “MIST” technology, pioneered by CBC and the first of its kind, can be used for mission-critical perimeter surveillance, port, harbor and airport security applications.
The real-time MIST technology of the Ganz® THRU Vision Camera works with any C/CS-mount lens, by focusing through obstacles present in the atmosphere that can obstruct or deteriorate video image quality (i.e. fog, rain, haze, smoke or snow). 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.
For extreme long distance surveillance, the THRU Vision Camera can be paired with the Computar® THRU Vision 60X Zoom Lens (25-1500mm w/extender) to clear obstacles and provide images clearer than the human eye. Lens technologies previously available were not able to reproduce color images, or focus through solid particles like smoke, sand or snow.
