VMS Options For 1,500 Camera Project - Avigilon Or Alternative?

Asking for a friend (:

I work in a multinational company (site is in Asia) and we're about to put up a new building. We are working with a consultant who insists on using Avigilon. They have managed to convince my upper management to put in as a requirement - Appearance Search. Budget is a constraint. I am the middle manager tasked as "project owner". I suspect someone's getting a new car after this project.
