They already have an analog / dvr system in place  Looked like a typical 16
camera installation.  Their goal is to use this new system to fill some
holes and take care of immediate problem areas.  Then to phase out the old
system they have in place that they do not like, and then to add on to
finish their needs.  They already have a budget for the immediate project.

In addition I have seen displays from two other facilities they have that
have recently been upgraded similar systems.  The amounts are such that they
are required to go out to bid by law.

I'm a Johnny come lately to the process just having been invited to the
table, but I could use the business so I am going to chase it.  They aren't
yanking my chain.  They are upgrading and filling holes in a progressive
manner.  Their real goal is about 90 cameras at this particular facility.
The two smaller facilities that they did first looked to have 18 and 30
cameras respectively based on the connection list I saw.
