Bit Map

By Inkjet Insight / Published:

In computer graphics, the collection of individual dots—or pixels—that make up a screen image. Bitmapped, or raster, images are defined as a series of dots. At the lowest color depth, 1-Bit color, each dot is either black or white, “on” or “off.” At higher color depths, increasing numbers of bits describe each pixel which allows for the display of a greater number of different colors.
