Should I Use Genetec Or Exacq?

I'm looking for some professional opinions on which of the following two IP VMS solutions i should use, Genetec or ExacQ.

Some specifics of my origanization and my requirements are as follows: 100 sites; I would like to view each remote site from a single 'HQ' type location; up to 250 cameras per site; camera resolution will be comprised of 50% 1MP and 50% 3MP at each site; i want to record each camera at full resolutions at minumum of 15 frames/second; Each site will have between 8 - 15 simultaneous clients viewing up to 16 cameras for each client; I want server redundancy in case one server fails, a second or redundant server will automatically record.

Thoughts?
