Help - Who Makes This No Name Camera?

Well this one's a treat... we got invited to check out and possibly quote for upgrading a dozen cameras in a condo tower, as a couple were failing and they were really unhappy with the current system. We figured, let's go in, give it a look, bring down a Vigil NVR, hook it into their network, and see if we can get their cameras working on it. Well, I've managed to get Vigil to work with a number of "unsupported" cameras using either ONVIF, or its generic RTSP and HTTP support... when the camera's full URL/MRL to pull a stream is known.

Unforunately these cameras give NO indication of who made them or what kind they are other than probably some cheap offshore OEM thing... the software is logo'd as mEyeNET but appears to be some sort of free NVR that was likely bundled with the cameras (the machine actually has Exacq installed as well, but it's not being used). The cameras are actually decent image quality, but the software is absolutely horrid.

Ultimately, we'll probably quote to replace the cameras as well as the NVR, but since there's not really anything wrong with the cameras, we'd like to save the potential client a bit of cash by re-using whichever ones we can. To do so, though, I'll need to find out the URL/MRL for them (eg. rtsp://192.168.0.xxx/something/stream.asp or whatever), and for that, I'll probably need to figure out who makes the damn things.

I have a couple screenshots of the CMS here:

And here's one of the camera's login screen - kinda reminds me of an ACTi, but the ACTi finder utility didn't work, nor did the ACTi settings in Vigil:

(I do have some screencaps of the cameras' interface as well, coming shortly...)

Anyone has any idea what brand these things are???
