STARLIGHT is now STELLAR Home Theater and Beyond

Texas audiovisual systems integrator celebrates 15-year anniversary with expansion and name change

Audiovisual and home automation integration firm, STARLIGHT, headquartered in Allen, Texas, celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, and announces a name change to STELLAR Home Theater and Beyond.


The new name more accurately reflects the company's reputation and expanded service offerings. 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 most recently, 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," STELLAR President and CEO Shane Bala says. "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.

Anniversary Plans Include Further Expansion

As leaders in the field of home entertainment, home automation, audiovisual systems and more, STELLAR specializes in delivering both a customized experience that goes far beyond the offerings of big box electronics stores and an unyielding commitment to excellence.

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.

STELLAR Home Theater and Beyond will be celebrating its 15th anniversary now through the remainder of the year, with further expansion into the Houston market, as well as industry and events for manufacturers, builders, designers, and end-users that will serve not only to celebrate but to showcase the products, technologies, and services STELLAR provides throughout Texas.
