shadow mask
Explanation:
this is the mask which is used in classic color CRTs (Cathode Ray Tubes). It prevents the elecron beam of a given color to fall on phospor points of another color (thus shadowing the other beams), there are as many holes in such a mask than there are physical color points on the screen.

agree  Hans-Henning Judek: "shadow mask" is the older, now obsolete technology. Wonder, why they are still producing it?
