TICO compression

The new lightweight and disruptive video compression technology, Extremely tiny in ASIC & FPGA , Fast & Powerful in CPU


TICO compression is a disruptive visually lossless light-weight compression specifically designed for the industry. This revolutionary technology is extremely tiny in hardware (FPGA, ASIC) , fast and powerful in software (CPU), robust for real-time operation with no latency.


Up to now, image and video are sent or stored uncompressed into many displays and systems such as cameras videos servers or recorders. TICO is a smart upgrade path to manage higher resolutions (4K, 8K…) and frame rates  while assuring visual quality, keeping power and bandwidth at a reasonable budget and reducing significantly the complexity and cost of the system.

TICO compression key features

  • Visually Lossless up to 4:1.
  • Persistent and Robust: Indistinguishable image loss over multiple generations
  • Latency: Few Microseconds – very few line of pixels ( selectable from 1 to x)
  • Small complexity and ultra-compact codec: easy to implement in low-cost FPGA or ASIC. It uses little internal memory and no external memory.
  • Powerful , Real-time or faster than real-time in CPU
  • Compatible with different resolutions, from mobile to 4K/8K UHDTV, via multiple usual transport schemes.
  • Designed to be a standard for the industry-wide support: TICO compression technology is available on multiple software and hardware technologies. Code, hardware IP-cores and software libraries are licensable from intoPIX.

TICO light-weight compression is a smart solution to :

  • Support higher Data stream (HD, 4K, 8K …) in existing systems or networks using the available pipeline bandwidth.
  • Increase the number of streams or the stream resolution that could be supported in a multi-stream configuration
  • Reduce significantly the internal video bandwidth (and power consumption) in systems such as mobile devices, cameras, video servers and displays.
  • Increase with cost-effectiveness the storage or video buffer or frame buffer capacity.
  • Solve display link limitation on TV, monitor and mobile panel to carry larger resolutions than could be support by a display link with uncompressed images and video in real time.
  • Reduce the number of lanes in a display interface needed to transport a display stream in order to save power, cost, or both. Or even enable the use of a lower link rate for applications where high link rates may not be possible

Typical applications from HD to 4K/8K Ultra HD:

  • Digital Video Recorders
  • Video Servers, mixers , routers and switchers
  • Cameras (high-res, real-time or high speed)
  • Video monitor and displays
  • Frame grabbers and video capture devices
  • Industrial  and surveillance
  • Cable extenders
  •  (…)

Join the TICO Alliance and move to UHD4K over 3G-SDI & 10G IP networks 

www.tico-alliance.org

The growing consortium is a coalition of companies united to set the bar for next generation UHD/4K infrastructure by establishing TICO compression in the new IP-based Live ecosystem. The group will enable the industry to seamless update the existing SDI-based workflows to UHD/4K without the cost of a complete renewal.
