@Waddizzle - I wonder if you have a response on this one?
What do you think?
Your camera is already capable of output clean HDMI.
I suggest that you use it. All you need is a video capture device. The Blackmagic Design ATEM Mini HDMI Live Stream Switcher is that type of video capture device. All you need to add is a USB HDMI capture device, and a microphone. I do not understand why you would want to use audio from the camera. I

Further, the EOS R already has such good onboard audio hardware - so why not use it more broadly?
These present an excellent basis upon which to put Canon in control of the audio as well as the video - if only they can match audio to video in-camera. Even no need for new hardware... just bring software in line with latest hardware.
Right now I am looking to minimise and rationalise my hardware needs, especially as I'm carrying around all this audio-equipment in the EOS R, and it's not being used.

I will explain. When livestreaming content where audio and video are required (e.g. music, public speech, dance, etc), it is imperative to synchronise the audio with the video. Any async or drift is uncomfortable for the Consumer viewing / listening to the content."
No need to explain something that I did not ask about. I find it VERY odd that someone who is so interested in using the highest quality 4K video to live stream music performances would want to settle for the low quality, audio in a DSLR. Your AM radio has wider bandwidth and dynamic range..
No response is needed or desired. BTW, your link seems to be dead or bogus.

Please don't misunderstand me - I don't mean the playback capabilities of the camera - that's terrible. I'm talking about inputting a stereo line-in to the camera's audio input, direct from the mixer, probably via a Rodelink.
And wow, did you guys really remove my post entitled "A Roadmap for Livestreaming - Canon Software and Hardware"?
Why would you do that?
