Hero 5 Live HDMI Output colors way off

Hi there- We've been using GoPro for live cameras on major sports productions going back to the Hero 2. We've experimented with various HDMI-SDI solutions over the years, settling on the AJA HA5 and sometimes the Monoprice converter.

 

We just invested in our first Hero 5 Black cameras, and are shocked by the difference in color between the HDMI output and the phone preview. Phone looks great, HDMI out looks green and washed out.

 

Has anyone experienced this? Any hope for a firmware fix, or are just going to have to hope our video operator can fix it in a frame sync?

HDMI GrabSure. The above photo was grabbed through the HDMI port with no color retouching.

iPhone Screen Grab

 The above photo is from a screen grab off my iPhone 6 screen. 

 

No retouching on either photo except to resize. You can see how green the HDMI output is compared to the screen grab.
