    Funny thing that for blue square at 10:35 a screenshot on Win 10 Creators Update gives different RGB values that are presented in the video.

    While square was supposed to be "RGB(1, 120, 215)" picking this color in Paint gave me "RGB(11, 129, 206)" - actually a lighter version of blue.

    So, while presentation device could possibly even be HDR10 compliant, shooting the video with camera under different light and/or postprocessing the video is tricky, as it does not represent original colors accurately. Can this problem be solved? I doubt. And yet, you speak about color quality. Can you notice the irony of circumstances?
