Is 'Avigilon The Only Solution For Banks Now'?

I recently met with the reseller of a big rollout for a bank, his words to me were that Avigilon was the only solution for banks as now with Avigilon JPEG2000 cameras they can for the first time make out the various bank notes. I must hand it to Avigilon their marketing is very good, and they are listening to the customer requirements. This particular bank is now moving from an end-to-end analogue solution that has not been able to meet their requirements the last 2 years to another end-to-end solution. From what I have seen from other vendors high resolution ONVIF cameras is that a 1080p HDTV H.264 camera in a bank environment should be sufficient for identifying bank notes and will be more cost effective and use less storage. Is JPEG2000 really the best compression for banks, and at short distances in a bank environment surely the client doesn't need 5megapixel cameras?
