"Now, after the acquisition, they are re-affirming their intentions to ship NUUO in North America."... Freudian slip or a typo?

Sorry that my mistake in edits! Fixed.

Hopefully Camera Manager has data centers all over Europe that Eagle Eye can piggyback on. European Data legislation has rendered EagleEye not viable in the region until they can sort out their data storage and transmission infrastructure.
