A1 Black Levels?

I'm curious if there is a setting for outputting 7.5 IRE black levels in analog component or composite from the A1? Or, should it do this automatically?

Did a search in the forum and found a few mentions, but no concrete answer.

I just did some downconverts to Beta SP for a client and the black levels we're definitely crushed for NTSC (the bars output at 0 IRE in analog component).

Since the bars went to tape at 0 IRE, they can simply bring them up to 7.5 when they edit. But, curious if anyone knows if I can do this out of the camera? It doesn't appear so to me...

Thanks,
Blake
