I don't know a GenCP-over-UDP - where can I find some information about this?

CamaraLink is f.i. to find in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Camera_Link  - at 
the schema you can see the serial to grabber and the serial the camera line.
The original cameralink specification you can download at 
http://www.visiononline.org/vision-standards-details.cfm?id=171&type=6. Without 
registration is it find at many other location 

The GenCP control channel is at the end a bidirectional serial channel like a 
pc uart (electrical are this two LVDS-signal lines). The signal data are 
asynchron serial frames with start, stop and data bit exactly like uart. The 
GenCP frames self are described in

correct. U3V in opposite to cameralink has a different prefix and a different 
endian order.
