How to save a 16 bit video file as tiff/avi/...

I want to acquire and save a 16bit video file to open it with ImageJ afterwards. I am using the Image Acquisition Toolbox. This only gives the opportunity to save the file as MJ2 or Archival which are not supported by imageJ. Is there a way to save the video as a tiff or avi without data loss? I am grateful for any advice

Roman, There are a couple things you can try.
Either you can post process the MJ2 video file i.e. read it in using VideoReader and save it as a multi-page TIFF file using IMWRITE or TIFF object. You can also write a sequence of TIFF files.
Use the FramesAcquiredFcn callback of the VIDEOINPUT object used to acquire the video and use IMWRITE or TIFF object to write either a multi-page or sequence of TIFF files.

Thanks for your answer Dinesh Iyer. I have solved the problem by downloading a plugin for ImageJ which allows me to open MJ2 files.
