Camera animation washed out color?

Attempting for the first time camera animation, but the rendered movie appears to be faded, washed out, loss of color- not sure the proper term here.  The only help suggestion I could find was exposure settings, but couldn't find any?  Suggestions as to fix?  Attached image shows original, with window in upper left showing washed out color in movie animation rendering.

Look at your lighting within Studio.

I'm thinking it's not the lighting.  I changed lighting styles and the rendered animation is still washed out.

If I do a still rendered image (attached) the color looks ok.  On the video player, I tried adjusting the hue, saturation, brightness, and contrast- but it did not help.

Another suggestion?

My NVIDIA video settings were out of whack- that's why the still image was good, but the video was bad.
