Bill, we have lots of coverage on Exacq, including our most recent Exacq test and Exacq's place in the Favorite VMS Manufacturers 2016.
Overall, Exacq is a strong contender for schools but how good of a fit it is for you is hard to say without more information.
What are your key needs or interests in an NVR / system?
We are looking to install 2 exacq IP04-12T-R2A
NVR's with American dynamic cameras
IPL02B1BNWIY bullit cameras
Has anybody had experience with this combination
1 building 117000 square ft
1 building 50000 square ft
1 parking garage 200000 square ft
What is the best way to put together camera coverages so that we can get to the point we can follow a person throughout our campus. I have all the building measurements for each hallway room assembly areas parking and so on.
Exacq in a school environment is a good mix, I have done a lot of schools with exacq and they have each loved them but I wouldn't do AD cameras, I would take Johns suggestion and do a Hikvision mix or Samsung or if you want to really spend some dough, go Axis :) but don't do AD.
Also I suggest for a school district to use a COTS server, since you can virtualize exacq vision very easily, I recommend utilizing your existing infrastructure, spend the dollars you had set aside for an a series buy some storage for a SAN or NAS and store there, I wouldn't do the A series as at that price they are almost the cost of a Dell server, especially when you start getting the 4U models they are just priced very high when you can get a COTS server with 5X the horse power for the same price, plus you get a lot more future upgradeability compared to an exacq box.
I'll chime in as a competitive manufacturer. Spend a lot of time choosing the right integrator. I often tell prospects over 90% of the project success or failure will be the integrator and how much they were a partner in the design and installation.
