Starpower Home Entertainment Systems, Dallas’ premium A/V, custom-install and home appliance chain, formally opened its newest concept store last week in the suburb of Southlake.

The 15,000-square-foot showroom, first announced last summer, replaces the retailer’s previous Southlake location.

The multimillion-dollar facility is triple the size of its predecessor and, like the North Dallas flagship store it emulates, features interactive tech displays and fully functional kitchens.

The luxury vignettes underscore Starpower’s lifestyle approach to store design. While the lifestyle concept is “nothing new,” chairman Daniel Pidgeon conceded, he said it remains refreshing during a time of retail retrenchment.

“We believe it is misguided and a disservice to believe that people wish to make unemotional lifestyle purchases using only an online interaction,” noted Pidgeon, who doubles as the immediate past chairman of the Consumer Technology Association (CTA). “This store focuses on the intimate relationship between products and an upscale lifestyle, and that must be done in an environment that allows the client to fully-understand what they are buying.”

Added president/CEO and twin brother David Pidgeon, “This showroom unlocks the imagination and allows our clients’ dreams to become a reality.”

A ribbon-cutting ceremony and attendant launch party drew a who’s who of industry, sports clientele and government attendees last week, who came to celebrate with the four-store chain.

The 22-year-old family business, a two-time winner of TWICE’s Excellence In Retailing Award, also maintains showrooms in the Dallas/Fort Worth bedroom community of Uptown and in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Starpower’s new Southlake showroom boasts the only known video wall available at retail. The 180-inch, $180,000 display is from Quality Systems Technology and is comprised of 35 individual LED panels imported by Insane Impact with 2mm spacing. The wall is similar to displays used at sports venues, but is calibrated for home and small commercial use, Daniel Pidgeon told TWICE.

Qatar has been in a construction frenzy for the upcoming 2022 World Cup, an event requiring billions of dollars worth of new stadiums and infrastructure, as well as an estimated 1.5 million additional workers.

QST and the local integrator won a shootout against Daktronics to secure this project for the new Doha Metro system.

With a horizontal resolution of 17000 + pixels, almost 5 times of a 4K resolution, QST was tasked with designing a solution that would display the entirety of the 426 Ft. long ticker as one continuous zone.

QST engineers provided 2 design revisions and associated prototypes. We also customized the 4 inside 90 degree mitered corner as well as the 4 outside mitered corner in the “elevator shaft” allowing smooth scrolling of text from one side to the adjacent perpendicular side.
