A lot of companies are working on this, but for anything but a simple
audio in/audio out you need technology that's not yet available to the
broad public - at least not to the usual prices. Check out the AVB
specification (IEEE 802.1).

In the broadcast/studio segment, transport over ethernet is already in
use by some manufacturers.

Machines can do the work, so people have time to think.
