Will red work with live mulitcam switching? Will it be able to send info back and receive info and controls (ie iris, gain, ccu, power, etc) from a mobile truck or switching room?

From what I have read about Red, hehe, you can but red in a multicam environ, through the hd sdi port which will give you 720p HD. there is no ccu
for red but there is genlock and TC in/out

Note that there is 1080p Hd-sdi output with dual link capability. The 720p Hd-sdi is for monitoring purposes.
There is no need for most of the ccu controls, as the cameras should be pretty much colormatched. You can load a LUT from Redcine if you want to add an in camera look.
The things you would need to rig yourself is a tally, intercom and iris control.

Is there a significant latency in HD-SDI?

The is no practical latency in HD-SDI (unless you introduce a TBC buffer on the input), as it's an uncompressed link. There might be a small latency introduced in the 4k to 1080p downconvertion, but only RED would know that.
