That works. We might have to re-jig it a bit. But can put it back,

Assuming that mixer is the one doing the room audio, that's really what
matters. It means we can :)

It'd be unattended (except when fire-fighting)

We need reliable bandwidth between the front and back of the room. So,
preferably, gigabit ports on both sides, attached to the same switch. If
it isn't super-busy, and misbehaving, that should be fine.

And please, no port security :)

If that's not possible. You could patch a port at the front of the room
directly to one at the back. And we'd need a second one at the back,
to get a stream out to the internet.
