They are into remote control integration and I believe the remotes can be either IR or RF, and learnable by universal remotes.
Deane Johnson outlined a system that is very close to what I'm going to do.
I've decided on using the Goelst roller panel system instead of the curtains, as the roller panel system will allow for a more clean, discrete set-up in my room.
Here are some very crude
Google Sketchup images to give the general idea of what I plan. The colors are not accurate, just there so you can easily discern the panel system.
Two panel systems will be employed, fit into a valance over the screen. The first "inner" panel system will be black panels, used for masking the image with various pre-set stopping points (I plan to use the "zoom" method).
Here's a crude top view of the masking panel track:
Here's the MASKING system in "action":
The masking panels will be hidden behind the longer, outer panel system, which will be a more soothing color and cover the entire screen wall when not in use:
