I have a few year old Yamaha projector which has a 'black mask' feature effectively stopping light from leaving the projector where black boarders normally are. It does mean the black boarders are still only as black as the screen material (perceptively black) but is a different but IMO as good a solution as this, and somewhat cheaper too.

Just to clear up a few things. The acoustically transparent (AT) Vevo material is woven fabric, not perforated vinyl. So audio problems like comb filtering and high frequency loss are minimized or eliminated. The "openness" of the woven fabric is less than 3% (as compared to about 10% for a micro perforated vinyl screen) so there is very little light loss. An optional black backing material can be added behind the screen to eliminate any reflected light that DOES get through the screen, from bouncing back into the viewing area. IMAGE now offers the widest range of AT fabrics on the market, including the world's only 3D AT screen material. The minimal light loss through an AT fabric is far outweighed by the advantage of being able to place speakers where the director and sound engineer meant them to be - behind the screen. Once you hear your home theater speakers behind the screen, you won't be able to listen to them any other way. Finally, IMAGE has the blackest masks of any other screen manufacturer doing masking. ~ StJohn Group is IMAGE's North American distributor.
