Who Offers Popular Combined Access/Video Systems?

I would like to know if any of the integrators who sell a complete and fully integrated access/video solution from the same manufacturer have customers who truly like both parts of the product. After having talked with different end users over the years I have not found any that could say they really liked both parts of their access/video system. Most seem to do one part really well but not both. End users let us know your thoughts as well. With all the acquisitions and partnerships happening the past few years nothing seems to really stick out as a solid one stop shop for a one manufacturer complete solution.

I am just trying to get a pulse from other integrators with this topic. Personally I would think that more major players would have and want their own video systems, not OEM's either. When you have a company like Genetec and Avigilon that either bought or developed their own access lines and have disrupted the market you would think others, especially manufacturers that have been doing access control for a while, would have started down the path of developing their own or buying a video system company years ago. Years ago I would never take a company to the latest version of any software platform when available but these days it is usually not an issue unless there is an integration with another product. Of course integration is not always about video either and I get that but video is the obvious choice for an integration piece to your access control system.
