    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, it unleashes image sensor 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, and the 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.

    TicoRAW is the new RAW
    Gain in Efficiency, Improve your imaging workflows

    • Reduce power consumption and reduce 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, interfaces.
    • 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 a complete control of the RAW processing pipeline.
