Some years ago I was talking to Virginia DOT about access to camera feeds 
in the Hampton Roads (Southeastern Virginia) region. I eventually got 
access to the ftp site where the pics were dumped out every 5 minutes.

The listing of cameras was screen shots taken from an OpenVMS control 
application that had the camera names and locations on maps, as well as 
digital signage and some other functions. I was kind of surprised since 
this was late in the VMS game, perhaps mid 2000's. And the system was 
still being built.

Not sure if that board is a part of that setup but it was VMS. Probably 
still have the screenshots somewhere.
