Refers to the use of 24-bit color depth. Because humans Cannot distinguish 16 million colors, all images Can be represented as "true" as we see them.
The name given to 32-bit, 16.7 million color representation.
True color can be viewed as a degenerate case of direct color, in which the subfields in the pixel value directly encode the corresponding RGB values. That is, the color map has predefined read-only RGB values. The values are typically (near-)linear increasing ramps.
A monitor system that has at least 24- bit graphics divided among the 3 primary colors, red, green, and blue ( RGB). Each color is allocated 8 bits which translates into 256 different possible hues of red, 256 hues of green, and 256 hues of blue. Since each color is independent of the other, this leads to 16.7 million possible colors (256 x 256 x 256) which has a greater resolution than a human eye and hence is considered to lead to accurate (i.e., true) colors.
A term used to indicate that a device, usually a video adapter, is capable of displaying 16,777,216 different colors.
24-bit color. 16,777,216 colours
A 24-bit color depth. See bit depth for more information.
(n.) A graphics system that is usually equipped with at least 24 bits per pixel. In the 24-bit system, for example, three primary colors in the color graphics systemâ€”red, green, and blueâ€”are allotted 8 bits each. The intensities are 2^8, or 256 intensities each for red, green, and blue. This figure translates to a total palette range of 16.7 million colors (256 x 256 x 256). Because the human eye cannot detect the subtlety available in a palette of 16.7 million colors, this range makes possible the computation of what appears to be gradual shading. Also called 24-bit color, RGB color.
a.k.a. 24-bit color, is the specification of the color of a pixel on a display screen using a 24-bit value. Each RGB level is represented by the range of decimal numbers from 0 to 255. The total number of available colors is 256 x 256 x 256, or 16,777,216 possible colors.
Refers to any graphics device or software that uses at least 24 bits to represent each dot or pixel. Using 24 bits means that more than 16 million unique colors can be represented. Since humans can only distinguish a few million colors, this is more than enough to accurately represent any color image.
Any graphics device or software that uses at least 24 bits to display a pixel. This results in a display of 16.7 million colors, more than the human eye can recognize.
A term for 24 bit color (16.7 million colors - any combination of 256 shades each of Red, Green, and Blue).
The specification of a monitor's screen using a 24-bit value, which allows the possibility of up to 16,777,216 possible colors. Older displays support only an 8-bit color value, allowing up to 256 possible colors. Many monitors offer a 32-bit color mode. The extra byte, called the alpha channel, is used for control and special effects information.
Color display with a displayable range of 24 bits or 16.7 million colors.
32bit color, millions of colors.
n. See 24-bit color.
