intoPIX TicoRAW improves RAW image workflows and camera designs

Image sensors are used everywhere and to meet the demands for higher quality video and better analytics, the usage of uncompressed or RAW files can't be ignored. However, without using smart processing and coding, bandwidth and file sizes exceed the limits of most of our devices and interface capabilities.

intopix.com, Jan. 13, 2022 – 

TicoRAW delivers the most beautiful pixels and most perfect colors, with the most stunning brights and the deepest darks ... with the world's best efficiency

Designed by intoPIX, it unleashes image sensor and traditional RAW data-flows thanks to an innovative processing and coding. The full power of the image sensor is preserved while reducing the bandwidth, the storage needs, the power consumption of the device, and the raw transfer time. It offers high image quality and the capability to manage high resolution, high frame rate and high dynamic range workflows.

TicoRAW is the world's first RAW codec, handling both RAW pictures and RAW videos, that can offer compression efficiency with such low complexity on RAW Bayer and other Color Filter Arrays (CFA) patterns. Tico stands for tiny codec. The technology and associated products are covered by one or more claims of patent, awarding intoPIX's hard work and innovation.

High Quality RAW - Ready for your application

TicoRAW is suitable for both human vision and machine vision applications.

The benefits of TicoRAW

TicoRAW stack includes small footprint IP-cores

Available for ASIC design and FPGA (on Intel, Xilinx and Lattice FPGA platforms), the TicoRAW IP-cores deliver full flexibility to users. Features include : adjustable compression rates from 2:1 to 16:1 and selectable constant bitrate (CBR) or capped variable bitrate (VBR). So, whether you need lossless quality for video applications, or mathematically lossless for machine vision or analytics, TicoRAW has you covered.

They can be embedded in any type of camera system and any pixel rate, solving internal and external bandwidth limitations or storage challenges.

TicoRAW stack includes fast software libraries

Looking for a software? The intoPIX FastTicoRAW software development kits are available for x86-64 Intel & AMD CPUs (v2.12) and Nvidia GPUs (v1.8.2). These SDKs offer superior performance and include high-speed (de)coding, high frame rate support and low latency.

TicoRAW Specifications

intoPIX TicoRAW Technology Added with High-Efficiency RAW Recording of Nikon Z 9 Flagship Mirrorless Camera

End of 2021, Nikon made the bold strategic move to select the intoPIX TicoRAW technology: leapfrogging existing camera limitations to meet all advanced and upcoming requirements of imaging professionals, whether in live sports, film, wildlife documentaries or other challenging environments. Thanks to this addition, the new Z 9 camera offers High-Efficiency RAW recording up to 8K and 60fps (available through the 2022 firmware update), preserving all the benefits of the RAW format, while ensuring very low power processing and very fast transfer speed.

With TicoRAW, the full quality of the captured sensor data is preserved while reducing the bandwidth and the storage needs. It can be used for both Still pictures and RAW movies. This patented technology offers high image quality, and the capability to manage very high resolutions, high frame rates and high dynamic range workflows. TicoRAW is the world's first RAW codec that can offer compression efficiency with such low complexity. It also has the advantage of retaining this very fast format for editing, regardless of resolution and/or frame rates used.
