I hard wired a camera directly to the battery and have been getting all kinds of intermittent static on the audio in playback. I also receive it when a radar unit is plugged into the 12 volt outlet in the dash.

Does anybody know if there is some new electrical component in the system that could cause the static?

I tried several work around's including adding a separate 12 volt outlet to the battery to no avail.

Interesting...
Either the camera is defective, or the camera is getting too little / too much power.

Is the direct connection to the battery fused? and what rating?

Automobiles are inherently electrically noisy. Too many intermittent contacts create all sorts of electrical and electromagnetic interference. It took decades before someone found a way to make a radio work in a car (and that person created the Motorola company, for "motorized victrola").

I don't have a solution to your problem; just pointing out that it is an inherently difficult issue. Good luck!

15amp fuse, never an issue in.past vehicles. Same equipment transferred over to the Venue.

Are the wires from the battery to the cabin close to other wires? You might be picking up interference from other wires that are close.

I think it's a ground issue. I only had a typical single ground, but now split it between both grounds on opposite fenders in the engine compartment. I still had some oscillation and added another ground from the secondary backup battery and that cleared more up. I might add another.

It's really unusual. My employee has a similar issue with his new Santa Fe. It could be all the new sensors and electronic stuff.

Have you tried wiring through the fuse box instead with a tap-a-fuse? It should reduce some of the static you're getting
