Sharing Video Streams Between Two Agencies

I have an existing installation of analog cameras where each analog camera is currently connected to Encoder A for one agency and Encoder B for another agency. Very simple, Very clean, no worries about interconnecting networks or either VMS creating conflicts with the other. As we look to migrate from analog to IP, I am looking for an equally simple architecture.

I would like to know of any experience with using a multi stream camera to feed two seperate VMS systems. My initial discussions with the two major VMS providers is to not configure a system where two different VMS systems are pulling streams from the same camera.

Thanks for any input!
