Provide the capacity to color correct monitors with ICC profiles and custom Look Up Tables.
I would like to be able to use my monitor color calibration tool [i1Profiler] to create and used custom ICC profiles for the monitors attached to the Display Link docking station.
There does not seem to be any capability to do this with the current system.
Would you please be able to look at: https://support.displaylink.com/knowledgebase/articles/1886413 ?

I'm a professional Photographer and just spend hours trying to calibrate my hardware calibrated Eizo ColorEdge CS 270 with the provided program Colornavigator 7 on my Mac. But every time the program wants to store/set the new ICC profile it fails. This error is displayed by Colornavigator 7 "ICC profile settings error, Failed to preform ICC profile settings". After some frustrating hours I finally found out that it's my displaylink WAVLINK adaptor which is the cause of all these errors. Eventually I connected my monitor to my computer using a different usb hub and it all worked out fine. Please fix this... because I would love to use only your Adaptor
Any news on this? I'm also in need of color calibration of my monitors. Just bought a displaylink dock station and now I can't get the right colors. Used to have a surface dock and that wasn't an issue at all, now, I just have 3 monitors (2 apple cinema display, and the computer screen) in different colors... Please, give us a solution to calibrate with ICC profiles... I'm a photographer and need color calibrated screens and printer...

This is a major setback. The docking station was purchased in order to do color critical work using external monitors. Docks using DisplayLink are unfit for that purpose.

What a useless response Admin...
Is there a solution for this?
this is dating back over a year, has any progress been made on this?
The inability to load an ICC profile will mean that displayLink products will only cater for a market that doesn't care about good / accurate colours. For my use case, I'll not be buying another displayLink product until profile loading is a feature.
Since the monitor connected via DisplayLink is nearly always a second monitor, an observant user is always going to be annoyed by the color difference.
I really want to be able to user color profiles!
Same here. Not using color profiles on monitors renders the device useless.
And I also agree that the link to the KB does not solve the issue at all
The article you refer to reduces the 'blue light' to reduce eye strain.
The request for ICC profiles is to enable the screen to display 'true colors' i.e. the same as would be printed by a professional printer.
see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ICC_profile for further information.
These are two very different issues. So your link is not of interest to this request. It is also noted almost all modern graphics cards have support for the ICC tables.
