bit depth

the number of bits used to represent the color of an individual pixel on a computer screen. A bit depth of 1 would represent that the pixel could only be on-off — a black-and-white display. 8-bit displays can display 256 colors. 16, 24, and 32-bit displays are also common and display thousands or millions of colors.
