We built a small 6 camera OB truck a few years ago and we ended up going all JVC 251's, but running up Camplex hybrid fibre / copper rather than JVC's multicore for extended cable lengths. While we used JVC's CCU panels, it is possible to buy some alternative generic branded panels that supposedly can talk to a variety of cameras. Most of the camera CCU remotes are simply RS232 or RS422 bi-directional comms so it shouldn't have been too hard for BMD to add that to their camera convertor system. But sadly they didn't. Maybe the variation in bitrates, connectors and so on would have made it too difficult.

I dont think adding a proc amp after the camera is the right way to do it though.
