Bit Block Transfer

In computer graphics, a memory management function (used by graphics adapters) in which pixels are moved about in large chunks, rather than bit by bit or byte by byte. Such adapters tend to perform better and more rapidly. A chip in a graphics coprocessor that effects bit block transfers is called a blitter, while the act of executing a bit block transfer is called blitting.
