Manufacturer / Integrator Cooperative Advertising?

For years in the CCTV Surveillance industry a few companies (the larger ones admittedly) had cooperative advertising agreements. For those new to the concept, they would pay for a portion of your advertising, you, the integrator would pay the remaining portion. Does anyone know of a manufacturer still offering this? What happened to that plan; if any manufacturers are reading I would appreciate your input.
