There is going to be delay in any digital system. It doesn't help to place blame on specific links in the chain. Just plan on doing audio delay to restore sync. It is not expensive to do.

IMHO, genlock is an artifact from the analog TV era. Probably still valuable in a large studio complex, but of only academic interest to small-scale users which the ATEM products appeal to (because of their price structure).

It would cost you at least 10x more to use gen-lock cameras than to simply delay the audio to restore sync. It isn't even a horse race. That kind of money would be MUCH better spent on other things which would actually add production value to the final product. (Like instant replay, etc)
