Hi all, My first post here! I've been asked to live stream our church service on Sunday. I have a 2019 MacBook Air with two USB C ports. I have a Canon 80D camera with HDMI out. I need to take get the sound from the mixing desk and the camera input into my Mac so I can live stream via YouTube. I'm seeing many USB C to HDMI converters on Amazon but they appear to be output to a monitor to input from a camera. As the MacBook doesn't have a mic jack I'll need USB for that too. Any suggestions on such a product? There must be something that exists for this use case. Many thanks.

I also have an iPhone 11 Pro which I'm not sure how to use in this scenario as I can't get the mixing desk sound into it.

Do a search for USB-C HDMI Capture. There are a number of devices that will come up. I can't really speak to any of them being any good or working on a Mac but that's what you need to use.
