Images with more than 8 colors

I looked at an article for the JDI display on mbed. It says the following on images:

(Since MIP is expressed by 8 gradations, in the case of images expressed with more gradations than 8 gradations, it is preferable to perform area gradation display by digital filter (error diffusion processing etc.) processing.)

Where does that image processing take place - in the system MCU?

Question relating to:

We develop, design, manufacture, and sell "display" where it is necessary for the interface that deliver a lot of information at an instant and deliver it to the global market. …

There are two ways.

(1) The image after error diffusion processing is read out and displayed.

make BMP after Error diffusion processing. → Read BMP (Error diffused) → MIP-Format (8 colors) → MIP Display.

(2) Read out the image, error diffusing it with the CPU, and display it.

Read BMP (more than 8 colors) → Error diffusion processing → MIP-Format (8 colors) → MIP Display

A lot of error diffusion algorithms are published on the Web.
