The VNC protocol currently only supports 8, 16 and 32 bits per pixel.
You can do monochrome by selecting 8bpp palettised format and only using two
colours, and that will then result in very little data being sent after
If your device has limited processing capabilities then I'd recommend
Hextile encoding, which will compress two-colour palettised pixel data very
well and very cheaply in most cases.
And remember that you only need to send parts of the screen that have
actually changed back to the client, rather than the whole screen, unless
the client requests a non-incremental update.
