Related to the aspect of getting audio signals from stage to FOH-mixer:
AudioRail transport audio long-distance over ethernet. Their ADAT
version allows for cheap AD and ADAT-outs on stage (ADA8000), cheap
transport medium (Cat.5) and fairly cheap ADAT-ins at FOH.

Being deployed in live sound reinforcement")
Then there's MADI (64 channels long-distance over coaxial or fiber)
which reads somewhat cool to me but it gets nastily expensive. The only
cheap thing here would be the cable.
RME has MADI stuff (http://www.rme-audio.com/english/madi/hdspmadi.htm)
and there are ALSA drivers for it.
