Measuring VMS Vendor Size - 100,000 Deployment Claim

ISS spammed me (due to ISC West.) They claim they have "over 100,000 deployments globally". Now if you shipped a free copy with every D-Link camera sold in Office Depot, you could make up a number like that. Real deployments would help, too.

How does one measure VMS vendor "size"? Cameras being recorded? Sales volume? Deployments (regardless of camera count)?
