$2,995 for Milestone training? Yikes. Now, I know where they really make their money.

"Exacq was the only VMS to provide a clever, unique video library in the same layout as the VMS's UI, ....though most videos are outdated"

HAHA, the creative media intern who did the videos left the company. :)

Milestone... bloated software, bloated training costs. :)

Now, now, in fairness, the first day of Milestone's training is just for downloading a copy of XProtect....
