Sorry - I just say this. Gimme an idea of what you want to view with the cameras, what you are trying to accomplish.

He is from Winnipeg and probably thought of bidding on the new security camera's for Winnipeg Transit.

All the specs are here http://www.winnipeg.ca/MatMgt/FolderContents.asp?FOLDER_NAME=718-2007&YEAR=2007

I see the bid date is now 1/17/08 - so there is still some time. But I seriously doubt that this is Electrical Contractor work - more like a systems integrator type of design/build project.

I work for Metro in LA, we have 2,700 transit busses, each one bristling with several interior and exterior cameras. But this was installed as part of a very large and expensive data monitoring, collecting and transmission system involving all kinds of systems on the bus. Not something you can sketch out in a couple of days.
