Audiovisual and home automation integration firm Starlight, headquartered in Allen, Texas, is celebrating its 15th anniversary by changing its name to STELLAR Home Theater and Beyond.
STELLAR more accurately reflects the company’s reputation and expanded service offerings, according to the company. Just as a star goes supernova, creating a “stellar” event and scattering its energy and light across the universe, over the past 15 years Starlight, now STELLAR, has expanded across Texas with multiple design centers in Dallas, Allen, Plano, Westlake, and Austin. Plans call for a new location to be added in Houston later in the year.
“Starlight, now STELLAR, has provided highly differentiated luxury and high-performance audiovisual and automation services to our clientele for 15 years,” said Shane Bala, president and CEO of STELLAR. “Our expansive service offerings, including home cinema and dedicated home theaters, home automation, lighting, shade systems, structured wiring and security systems, plus interior design and design/build services, uniquely enable STELLAR to provide our new and existing customers more of what they need from a single source or point of contact. Our new name reflects our continued commitment to offering ‘stellar’ service backed by our ‘stellar’ staff’s years of experience.”
STELLAR’s expansion stems from both a burgeoning home automation and home cinema marketplace and a differentiated business model that couples a show home or an experience center with a synergistic business. Combining the best of all worlds, STELLAR staffs each of its design centers with highly trained and certified RID, ASID, and CEDIA, LUTRON, SAVANT and CONTROL4 AV system programmers that work directly with manufacturers, builders, designers, and end-users to design and deliver the projects of their dreams, in a straightforward, turnkey manner. STELLAR is a member of the Austin and Dallas Builders Association and the American Society of Interior Designers, and is a regular participant in local chapter events.
In addition to the name change, STELLAR Home Theater and Beyond has launched a new website, www.livestellarnow.com, which details the company’s expanded service offerings and locations.
