It is possible to have an 8 bit file in a 10 bit wrapper. I wonder if that's what you have here. PP is reporting the correct data, and MediaInfo is reporting the wrapper.
If that's accurate, the solution may well be to simply export out as 8 bit, since that's all you really have anyway.
That's would be possible, but I think it's not the case for two reasons. For one thing, I paid a very reputable company (pro8mm.com) for the film scan and paid extra to have a 10-bit RGB version delivered. Also, all players and MediaInfo report the codec as AJA 10Bit, and I don't see why the video would be captured in lower bit depth and then converted to 10-bit video (as most film scanners work in 10bit+ depths), except in the case ou foul play from the company who scanned the neg for me.
Do you know any software that can conclusevely analyze a video and tell if it is 'real' 10 or 12bit or 8bit upconverted?
