If custom development and third party integrations are key, the two most commonly chosen for good reason are Genetec and Milestone Corporate.

the problem will be custom integration then...it looks really ambitious.
we can analyze the integration if you like.
Some of my government customers are liking AirshipDVR. I haven't had the chance to play with it myself, but I hear good things about it from customers we have in common.
Camio runs at much larger scale than city projects and has a REST/json API for deep integrations inclusive of callback hooks for custom applications. If your custom adjustments are primarily geared towards your having the API flexibility to do whatever you need to do with the video/snapshot content in your own application, then we'd work with you; we do not, however, do custom app development. So I'm not sure that Camio is a fit for your project, but I'm happy to discuss quickly if you contact me. I'm a co-founder/CEO of Camio at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I know Dvtel has deployed in a system where phase one was 1~2k cameras, phase two 10~10K cameras and phase three another 2 ~ 4k cameras. It also has over 800 lanes of LPR and hundreds of cameras with facial capture and recognition. Selected cameras have advanced analytics. All camera events are integrated through the Detel VMS with the advanced analytics, integration to data mining, event manangment, and tracking provided by a custom command and control.
Thanks for all recommendations. In fact, I have all needed components for my side of the project and the question was exactly about VMS to cover typical tasks. As it was mentioned previously, for example Milestone could be a good fit and I tried to find good alternatives to consider.
Without trying to promote ourselves, I'd like to point out that ISS has done multi-thousand city surveillance projects, including one wrapping up right now with over 5000 cameras, LPR, and multiple command centers. We also do have a FCR offering and an open platform with an API available. We continually integrate new systems and devices into our VMS core to enhance the capabilities of our system as well as provide specific solutions for projects.
This said, I always advise caution when discussing FCR in an outdoor environment. One of the values I think ISS provides is working with our integration partners at a project management level to determine feasibility and any customization required for the project.
We would be happy to assist your subscriber in determining feasibility, support any integrations, and provide an enterprise VMS that’s already been battle-tested in a number of multi-thousand camera (and sensor) projects worldwide.

'A'... just to simply mention another VMS for your 'eval list' where I know they are involved with X thousand cam deployments.... VideoInsight (or IPVideo).
I do recommend you look at ISS. They don't have a lot of deployments in North America but they are big in South America and Asia. ISS has interfaces with many cameras and other sensors along with a suite of analytics including facial capture / recognition. They also are flexible with quick response for customization.
