I'm shooting with the RED. As my rig is SD. I have to use an AJA to send the sled a picture and to transmit.

I am getting ab ptap cable made so I can power odd acc's off the tops stage.

Until then, I have ab taps on the base of my sled. So I can run a cable from top to bottom and power everything ok. But I also have a BFD to ab tap cable. I'm not sure of the power draw of the AJA. But I believe I should be able to pass power through my BFD to the AJA.

thoughts?

not sure about how the pass through works but it sounds like it should, however some aja boxes are around 5-6 volts and others are at 12 volts. From experience you will fry the 5-6 volt variety :o

I just ran the cable from the aja on camera to the bottom stage worked out fine.

Didn't know that they had 5-6volt units out there. I think on their websites it says it take 5-17volts. Figured it to mean it work work at any.
