TicoRAW is the new RAW

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

Designed by intoPIX, TicoRAW unleashes image sensors, cameras and traditional RAW data-flows thanks to an innovative processing and coding. The full power of the sensor is preserved while reducing the bandwidth, the storage needs, the power consumption of the device, and the transfer time. 

TicoRAW is the world’s first RAW codec, handling both RAW pictures and RAW videos, that can offer such compression efficiency with such low power consumption and low complexity on RAW Bayer and other Color Filter Arrays (CFA) patterns. It offers high image quality and the capability to manage high resolution, high frame rate and high dynamic range workflows. 

The technology and associated products are covered by one or more claims of patent, awarding intoPIX's hard work and innovation. Tico stands for tiny codec.

TicoRAW is the New RAW
Gain efficiency - Improve your imaging workflows

  • Reduce power consumption and video bandwidth to process more pixels from the sensor.
  • Handle higher image and video resolution, high frame rate and high dynamic range easily: to capture, to record, to transmit, to edit, to analyze. 
  • Reduce the bandwidth of memory during the ISP process and RAW data analysis.
  • Get the lowest latency ("pixel-line")  to transmit RAW data over your wired/wireless network, infrastructures, and interfaces in real time. 
  • Efficiently decrease the stored RAW image data on the storage media, and extend camera battery duration 
  • Increase the editing, rendering, analytics speed and while retaining the sensor data needed for complete control of the RAW processing pipeline.

Free up RAW Storage Space and Bandwidth Needs
​From 2:1 to up to 16:1 with no compromise

    How TicoRAW can help you to get smaller RAW storage, longer recording time and faster file transfer and raw editing

    And how TicoRAW can help you to transmit RAW at the speed of light over limited bandwidth.
