  • Ultra-short throw

    BrightLink’s ultra-short throw projector design eliminates many of the common problems of interactive systems, such as an intrusive classroom footprint, as well as eye glare. With an incredibly efficient .37 throw ratio, BrightLink, allows you to project extra-large, 80" images while the projector is less than 10" away from the image surface, greatly reducing shadows that often appear when using a traditional short-throw projectors. The new optical design includes leading-edge 3LCD chip technology to deliver brilliant images in extra-large sizes. This new ultra-short throw projector includes the wall mount which is designed for simple wall installation.3
  • Ultra big — Interactive presentations up to 96" — Brilliant widescreen performance

    Why be limited to a standard size interactive whiteboard? Take advantage of one of the largest interactive learning areas available without paying a premium for size. BrightLink can project images up to 96" in native WXGA, giving every learner a great view without straining your budget!
  • Ultra flexible

    While interactive whiteboards are limited to a predetermined height and width, BrightLink has no such constraints. Set the size of the interactive area to fit your available space. BrightLink’s size-adjustment also means a simpler solution for technology managers. Use one type of hardware to fit in various types of spaces, and reduce the complexity and cost of managing and maintaining multiple types of equipment. And, with Epson software, EasyMP® Network Projection and EasyMP Monitor included, it is easy to monitor and control all networked Epson projectors.
  • Ultra versatile

    BrightLink works on almost any surface — an existing whiteboard, a flat wall, a chalkboard with dry-erase paint or a table. Interactive capabilities are built into the projector and not into a board, so virtually any surface will work. Teachers were thrilled to learn they can keep using their dry-erase boards with the BrightLink projector. Save money by not having to hassle with uninstalling perfectly good boards. Instead, transform all those dry-erase boards into multi-function devices just by adding interactive functionality.
  • Smooth Drywall
  • Light wood paneling
  • Foam core board
  • Painted chalkboard
  • Standard whiteboard
  • Advanced connectivity and management capabilities

    BrightLink works seamlessly with existing systems for easy and consistent management over all projectors on the network.
