Dell PremierColor is a software application that gives you control over the color quality and the fine level of detail you require for your color-critical work. This is meant for those who work in CAD/CAM, graphic, game or animation design, video editing or media creation. It was created for use with Dell laptops and Precision Desktops.

This support was not part of the design criteria when these versions were under development.



Working as Designed


We have identified that PremierColor v4.0 and v5.0 does not have in-built support for Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) panels. If your system configuration includes an OLED panel, then you get the system not compatible error.

Dell PremierColor is only supported on selected Dell Precision and Dell XPS computers with 100% Adobe RGB or 100% sRGB panels.
