Telefunken TV screens are very nice but IMO useless facility in MPI Campus Guesthouse in Golm, Potsdam, Germany. Well, unless you connect it to your laptop as a second screen via HDMI or VGA. However, its initial colors are ugly. To make a correction, I have adjusted the screen′s settings to neutral and then calibrated it with X-Rite Colormunki spectrophotometer. The resulting profile is at least usable and quite okay for a TV screen. Here is color gamut visualization compared to AdobeRGB color space gamut:
