Bill, the proof is in the pudding. Let's see what is happening to the ratings of the stations that have put it on the air.

Geoff Steadman,  Founder, 25-Seven Systems

For the record, we've been shipping Voltair for almost a year, and have sold every single unit. The number on air is now closer to 350.
Our policy is simple: We sell Voltair direct. We don't advertise. We don't discount. It's first come, first served, and our waiting list keeps growing. All Telos Alliance products come with a 5-year, no BS warranty. We offer a 30 day "no questions asked" return policy. No one has asked for their money back.

Bill Simmons

Something tells me that many of the stations that are using Voltair didn't buy the box. How could they? What would happen if Nielsen disqualified the technology? Most gear has a 30 day return window. Not exactly enough time to evaluate it over multiple months. You can't buy publicity like this but you can give it away.
