Discontinued OEM Support Siemens

Our major client has an extensive Siemens CCTV network (SiNVR) and a Siemens Access Control System (SiPass), for which we provide hardware support. We've been advised that SiNVR support has ceased following the launch of a new Siemens product. (of which we have no information). Previously, our client sourced their cameras exclusively from Siemens. Our client has expressed an interest in our company supplying cameras in the future. In determining which cameras are fully compatable with the SiNVR VMS, we are reliant on an Annex in the SiNVR documentation, which lists the cameras "approved" for use with the Siemens system. Our dilemma is: Many of the cameras listed as approved are no longer available and, 2. The cameras listed are all "top of the line" and probably not the best value for money for our client. [Client often billed at $3-4K(Aus)/camera]. Any thoughts on the way forward for us, in taking on the hardware supply role?
