Frank Sterns, a multi-decade industry veteran who spent many years with Niles Audio, began a new role last year with Sony, as head of the CE giant's custom install channel.  At this week's HTSA spring summit, we sat down with Sterns and two of his colleagues, Gordon Shackelford and market planning specialist Joshua Sy, about Sony's plans for the year, as well as Sterns' transition to his new role. 

Sony Electronics announced new home theater front projectors to be available in late autumn for the custom install channel: the VPL-VW1100ES and VPL-VW600ES 4K front projectors – at CEDIA Expo, and will stress an ecosystem approach to their marketing, said executive vice president Mike Fasulo.

You don’t report to Frank Sterns for 15 years and not learn a little bit about wine. Frank was my boss at both Niles and Infinity. And while you might not know him, you’ve probably sold, installed or even used some of the market-leading products he developed. Maybe you’ve even tasted his award-winning Aurielle wine. We both enjoy a passion for high-end electronics, and Frank’s love of fine wine has rubbed off on me.
