    I understand that I can use the AVB routing to send one signal source to multiple computers.

    For the sake of live-theatre-performances, can I send signals, from multiple sources, to one output?

    IE: If I have two computers on a AVB network, can I use the AVB router to patch them both into the same outputs, enabling them both equal access to the same PA, without the workflow of creating a mix bus or matrix?

    No, you need something like a DSP where you bring all your inputs in and have a mixer block that sums those inputs together appropriately into a single set of outputs.

    AVB/Dante/Cobranet/etc -- all these transports only allow you send signals somewhere. They do not have any DSP capability that they can mix/combine/etc at the network level. They are strictly able to route signals over IP 1:1 or 1:[Multiple], but never [Multiple]:1
