I undertand that both eggcrates and louvers help prevent light spill, however, is there a signficant difference? I'm looking into purchasing either or. Could anyone explain the difference?

thanks,
Jason

Louvers control the spill in one direction, perpendicular to the direction they're running. Ie if the louvers are verticle they're controlling horizontal spill. Eggcrates control spill in both directions. You can kind of think of them as a gang of mini barndoors, louvers are 2 panel doors, eggcrates - 4 panel doors.
