8-bit color

The number of colors in a display system. An 8-bit color system may use a total of eight bits per pixel (see indexed color) or eight bits for each red, green and blue subpixel. The latter is also called "24-bit color" or "True Color," which is the minimum number of bits for photorealism. See color depth and bit specifications.
