Oculus Quest display colours seem off

We are experiencing some issues with the development of our museum for the Oculus Quest. For a true, lifelike representation of paintings, it's vital the colours of the canvasses in-game match the real works. We are satisfied with the way the colours are represented on the Oculus Go, and on the rift, but on the Quest, the colours seem a lot more saturated. Could the displays be that different or does Oculus use some kind of post-processing colour correction? When we made a video capture for demoing purposes on the Quest, the colours seemed more natural than experienced in-headset. This suggests that the display of the Quest has different colour properties. We have been thinking about doing device specific post-processing colour correction but future changes in the Oculus hard/software could cause us to have to redo these every time. We would love a more future-proof solution. Has anyone else had this experience?

    We've seen the same issues. An easy test is to create a greyscale gradient and display it on each device. On Rift, everything appears without a color cast. However, on Go and Quest, there is a visible color cast to the gradient. I'd describe it as "pink-ish".

    Also, like your experience, when we do a screen capture or recording, the capture doesn't exhibit the cast, leading us to believe that the colors are being modified on the way to the screen or as a characteristic of the display itself.

    We weren't able to solve this issue.

    Has anyone been able to solve this issue? I've been working on medical applications that depend heavily on mostly-red biological materials, which are now heavily blown out on the quest.
