Hi guys, I know theres lots of comments around this subject but havent found anything that has helped me.

Ive shot ex3 footage, transcoded to prores422, edited in premiere on a Mac, graded in prem and AE via dynamic link. Via Black magic hdmi to broadcast monitor.
Exported prores full, gamma adj none, then transcoded to h.24

So everything looks great on my monitor, when exported looks alright on a p.c if not a bit washed out but terribly dark and over contrasty on an imac.
Ive uploaded to vimeo and had mixed feedback depending on whether people watch it on a mac or p.c.

What am I doing wrong?
How do I ceate a happy medium for viewers as Im not happy with people watching my work looking like its underexposed or graded badly.

Would appreciate any suggestions
