I assume that only appears on the Precision screens and not the Premier. Maybe it was there to avoid reflection from that shiny black frame? The reason I ask is that the thin black strip there kind of bothers me and if it will be eliminated with the use of velvet over the frame now then the Precision/Economy screen looks more attractive to me than ever.
That thin strip was velvet, so essentially the whole frame is velvety goodness now. It essentially looks like the top picture of the Premier frame, as its logo badge is shrunk. I do need new pictures however. Got CEDIA stuff biting my ankles currently.

If you want to mount it to a curved wall, then it would simply use the standard Hangman brackets which can take that radius just fine. Or, if you want to ensure that curvature X meets curvature Y perfectly, we can put threaded inserts every foot or so, so that you can simply bolt it to the curved wall. This can be done with invisible flat brackets or visible L-brackets.

Thanks for this info! I'll probably go with the standard top bracket and build the screen wall from either end of the screen itself. Any possibility of motorized masking for the curved XD screen? Or is that reserved for Enlightor 4K?

I can't foresee taking the Seymour AV line up that much. I enjoy the line being priced where average Joes like me can shop.

You could add curtain tracks up above the screen for that cinema look, and masking function to boot.

Cheers,
Chris
