The Genesis has 1920 red, green, and blue pixels per line and, unlike a Bayer
chip, does not have to use any tricks to derive any missing information. Sure,
the pixels are physically offset to comply with the fact that two bodies
cannot occupy the same physical space at the same time, but all 5760 pixels
per line send information on to the processing circuits, without any "pay no
attention to the man behind the curtain" methodology.

So which part of the quoted statement is not completely true?
