The folks at Panavision inform me that you are correct.  The Genesis 
camera's CCD is over sampled vertically and the camera is not capable 
of outputting more than 1920x1080.  The camera's design focus was on 
dynamic range and sensitivity rather than resolution.  So for the 
second time today I must retract an erroneous statement on my part.
