Plugging a gap in its “TV Everywhere” lineup, Cisco Systems (NSDQ: CSCO) announced plans Friday to acquire privately held Inlet Technologies, a provider of adaptive-bit-rate video processing platforms, for $95 million.

Inlet’s video-encoding technology adapts the quality of a video stream based on real-time network conditions as well as the capabilities of the target device. According to Cisco, the Raleigh, N.C.-based startup will strengthen the capabilities of the Videoscape TV platform, by letting service and content providers deliver video to any device over any IP-based network.

Well I am wondering what it will be like for the TV Everywhere. I work over at DISH Network and I have the TV Everywhere option avail. I first used it at work and then I was hooked. I now have my TV avail to me when ever I have a chance to look at it. I think that this is a great way to get the best value out of your TV. When your busy like me and hardly home this works great.
