Default Route ProTools digital output to another laptop

I have Pro Tools 12.7.1 installed on a MacBook Pro (retina, 15', 2014. OS 10.10.5), fed by microphones through an Apogee Ensemble interface, which has spdif outputs, coaxial and optic. Would it be possible to route Pro Tools DIGITAL output to an Obs installed on ANOTHER laptop (Windows), for live streaming? This Obs laptop has no spdif inputs, only USB.

You'd need to add an audio interface that has S/PDIF inputs to the OBS laptop.
