it depends on the video chip and output pal/ntsc

And the video encoder and used video output. (E.g., for RGB output, PAL/NTSC is the same colours.)

And the used display device, and the settings on that screen, and with some bad luck the quality & length of the cables, and the person observing the screen could also be colorblind.... or completely blind, so any color would be like 0,0,0...

Sometimes... just sometimes...

Vampier means that the colors produced by the MSX1 VDP are not the same as those produced by the other VDPs.
Monitor is an exterior element. Without considering the slight hardware differences, the blue produces by MSXs should be the same but this is not the case. I think this is the blue produced by the MSX2~ (COLOR 4) that is the most popular.

Please, excuse me.
If it can be helpful, the MSX Blue Color should be -> RGB (1,1,7).
