The basic NEXUS principle:

Fibre-optic links transfer all audio and control information in a digital format. NEXUS Base Devices are installed in studios, in control rooms, and on stages. These Base Devices provide the inputs and outputs required in the appropriate format via standard connectors. Using a convenient GUI any number of inputs can be routed to the desired outputs – the physical location of the input and output resource and the format is irrelevant.

The NEXUS is the versatile audio network and routing system for controlling studio or mixing-console resources in switching rooms, for networking broadcast complexes, for sound-reinforcement, in O.B. trucks and for all other professional audio applications.
