TicoRAW is the new RAW codec created by intoPIX and designed to preserve the flexibility and quality of RAW with superior efficiency compared to conventional RAW. The technology was designed for camera and editing workflows, taking into account all the RAW requirements needed from camera design, storage, transfer and editing. Today, a broad range of solutions is available, from Silicon IP cores to Software.

For the new  Nikon Z9 & Z8 cameras, Nikon made the strategic decision to add the intoPIX TicoRAW, and they are now offering RAW photography with 20fps burst speeds and for shooting Motion Pictures Films with 8K60p RAW video with the efficiency that everyone would love to have. That's the so-called new N-RAW format of Nikon.

TicoRAW offers a wide range of incredible benefits for filmmakers! Here are 4 reasons to use it :
