[Todd Terry] "another layer of black hardware cloth"

By hardware cloth do you mean window screen?

You've seen those NFL announcers' booth shots, where the play-by-play people sit facing the camera, with the football field behind them, usually just for the opening of the show.

The lighting scheme is very low-tech. They keep a roll of black fiberglass porch screening material, rolled up and sitting above the window. They turn on the lights inside the booth, unroll the screen, and get a balance between the daylit field and the booth.
