InterStream has taken a viral or organic approach to Media Grid adoption. ISPs or content providers who elect to operate their media grid implementations under the InterStream Mediated Bandwidth Agreement (MBA) may use and modify the technology provided by InterStream without charge. nuMetra, a commercial sponsor of the Media Grid, provides implementations of the technology in exchange for a usage fee associated with their transit key registry system and secure mediation controller. These two systems are managed via nuMetra's media grid management portal.

A Media Grid is an open source implementation of software which supports streaming of Media Grid Objects. The MediaGrid is comprised of software & hardware elements which Encode, Upload, Serve, Mediate, Cache, Deliver, and Display the Content Media Grid Objects (Video and other streaming content) to other Media Grid Objects ("Clients" or "Engines") or to termination points such as an MediaGrid client. Media Grid Objects (Clients or Engines) self-organize their forwarding connectivity and association so that Content Media Grid Objects (CMGO) may be optimally streamed or downloaded across the Internet per optimization criteria that is specifed by (via the ITOSA) and managed by the InterStream Member ISPs who host the grid on their networks.

What is a Media Grid?

A Media Grid is an open source implementation of software which supports streaming of Media Grid Objects. These elements are comprised of software & hardware elements which originate, receive, proxy, cache, and route the ISTP streams to other Media Grid elements or to termination points such as an ISTP client. Media Grid elements (or engines) self-organize their forwarding connectivity and association so that ISTP objects (handles) may be optimally streamed or downloaded across the Internet per optimization criteria that is specifed by ISPs who host the grid on their networks.

ISTP uses a new naming convention to establish "portals" on the grid. A portal must adhere to the InterStream Terms of Service Agreement (ITOSA) and anti-piracy policy.

InterStream has taken a viral or organic approach to Media Grid adoption. ISPs or content providers who elect to sign InterStream's Open Source Peering Agreement (OSPA) may use and modify the technology provided by InterStream without charge.
