I'm currently working with the Genesis (in pana-log) / SSR-1.
The NTSC output of the SSR-1 is very low contrast, low voltage, low saturation and sometimes has a pulsating black level change.
Anybody else has that experience?

It's been nearly a year and a half since I used the SSR's but I had no problems with the SD output back then. All of your mags are showing this issue, Jens? Weird.
I should add that I'm viewing the image on my color LCD (Blackbird)
I've used two and they both were similar. when I used my redbyte and the camera hd-sdi output the signal got little bit better.
from the genesis FAQ:
"As noted above, the Panalog transfer curve changes the Genesis output signal to obtain maximum
latitude. This extended range will not display properly on a video monitor: the image may appear
overexposed, low contrast and/or desaturated."
could this be related?

A gamma corrected output is not available onboard of the Genesis or SSR.
The GDP (Gamma Display Processor) is designed to be used with DP or Director monitors. It offers a color corrected HD output in real time. It is a stand alone box that does not down convert to SD and is only AC powerable.
If you are having a pulsating black level I would definitely do some more investigation. I have not heard of any problems like the one you speak of with the SSR's.
Give you're local Panavision office a call, I'm sure they'll be more than happy to help out. If you still have any more questions feel free to give me a call at Panavision NY.
