Ive seen this many times (Less using a old beta camera) Definitely the lighting. Its almost like a black light effect. Purple is the worst.

Depending on the camera (Ex1/3, Panasonic...etc) turn off your gamma setting...basically making the picture "flat" and boring. This will help alot, but depending on the intensity of light..may not solve the entire thing. So don't expect a miracle. In post, I then tweak the contrast to make the image snap back. You can also remove a bit of the dominate color.

I hate those lights and I don't know if the issue can be resolved no matter what camera you use.
