intoPIX Suggest TICO-RAW For 4K And 8K Acquisition

intoPIX is promoting TICO-RAW technology as a technology that will “drastically simplify the way we deal with raw image sensor data and production workflows.”

TICO-RAW processes and codes the direct output of the image sensor, without applying a full de-bayering, and so preserving the advantages of the captured RAW data.

The company explains that the new TICO-RAW IP-cores come with a pixel line latency, ultra-low memory usage, “extremely low power consumption” and can code anything from a HD to a large 8K sensor, up to 16bits down to 1bpp (16:1).

intoPIX’s Director of Marketing & Sales, Jean-Baptiste Lorent points out: “New cameras and new workflows are created to meet the demands for higher quality video. The power and flexibility of RAW can’t be ignored. However, without using smart processing and coding, bandwidth and file sizes exceed the limits of most of our devices, workflows and interface capabilities.”

TICO-RAW is a perfect solution for supporting 4K to 8K raw dataflows, higher frame rates and high dynamic range at a reasonable bandwidth with microsecond latency.

It is also claimed to help lower power consumption thanks to a reduced bandwidth in the image processing pipeline and low-power and low-memory TICO-RAW processing.
