  • Just bought another LCD -> Supporting colour modes???

    Gday guys,

    I just purchased another LCD (12.1"er again). It is digital and comes with the appropriate PCI card.

    see it here....

    The guy selling it say that it supports true, high and 256 colour modes. but the spec website ( ) says that it supports 262,144.

    What is the equivalent of this???? ie. true colour, high colour or 256 (i wouldn't think so but could be )


    P.S. This screen will be extracted and added to a matching case (only in black) that is already in my car ready to go. In case your wondering were.....It is right smack bang in the middle of the dash (infront of the vents etc). The bracket allows it to slide up onto the dash for a flush fit!

    I'm excited!!!!!!

    Take some photos for us Ian, I would be very insterested to see how you incorporated a 12.1" LCD in a VL Berlina!

      Thats 18-bit color.

      8 bit color: 2^8 = 256

      16 bit color: 2^16 = 65536

      18 bit color: 2^18 = 262144

      24 bit color: 2^24 = 16777216

      I think you get the picture

      Im running 12 bit (4096 colors, the DennisK setup) and it looks fine... So 18 should be no problem at all for dvd etc...
