12-bit color

12-bit color

A display system that provides 4,096 shades of color for each red, green and blue subpixel for a total of 68 billion colors. For example, Dolby Vision supports 12-bit color. A 36-bit color depth also means 12-bit color because the 36 refers to each pixel, not the subpixel. See color depth, Dolby Vision and bit specifications.
