Bitmovin encoding distorts colors on HDR video

After encoding, video recorded on iPhone 13 Pro with HDR enabled has very different colors in the resulting video. Screenshots of original video (left) and after encoding (right):

Here’s configuration part for encoding:

new H264VideoConfiguration({
    name: `H.264 720p`,
    presetConfiguration: PresetConfiguration.VOD_STANDARD,


new Fmp4Muxing({
    segmentLength: 4.0,
    outputs: [buildEncodingOutput(output, outputPath)],
    streams: [new MuxingStream({ streamId: })],
