I have a Seymour AV CenterStage XD retractable, and it's an awesome screen. There is a black backing on them that should mask your items behind. But of course darker items behind is probably preferred. I really only have a problem with equipment LED's and display windows showing on occasion depending on what's one the screen. Not a big deal. The only thing I would like to see is retrofit side masking panels since I went with a scope screen. I've asked Chris about this a few times, but although he's given it some thought there are other projects that are a priority.
