From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 March 2015) :

  monochrome
  
      Literally "one colour".  Usually used for a black
     and white (or sometimes green or orange) monitor as distinct
     from a color monitor.  Normally, each pixel on the display
     will correspond to a single bit of display memory and will
     therefore be one of two intensities.  A grey-scale display
     requires several bits per pixel but might still be called
     monochrome.
  
     Compare: bitonal.
