A medium is a structure that identifies a hardware data path between two devices on the host system. They can be devices on the same card, such as a crossbar and a tuner on a TV card; devices on separate cards; or external devices. Kernel-mode filters based on the Windows Driver Model can use mediums instead of media types to determine pin connections.
