monochrome display A display where the picture consists solely of a single color (with variations of shade in some models: see gray-scale). Monochrome displays may have white, amber, or green screens. The choice of screen color depends on users' preferences, with strong claims being made by the advocates of each color. Monochrome displays are found in terminals and monitors using CRT or LCD technology. In display technology, much higher resolution can be achieved by monochrome than is possible in color displays and for a given performance monochrome displays cost much less than a similar color product.
