Epson BrightLink 485Wi Interactive WXGA 3-LCD Projector with Mount – powerful interactive presentations with flexible interfaces

By Databazaar Blog


The powerful Epson BrightLink 485Wi WXGA Projector uses 3LCD, 3-chip technology to deliver bright richly colored High-Definition (1280 x 800 resolution, 3100 lumens) images. You can choose to mount it on a wall or tabletop without compromising presentation quality. Connect the projector to your network and you are ready to make multi-room presentations.

Connectivity options include LAN, HDMI port (for a computer or video source), S-Video, VGA Ports and USB ports. Wireless connectivity is optional. You don’t need to limit yourself to using a computer with this projector. Blu-Ray players, iOS devices and ordinary white boards can also interface with it; support for android devices will probably be available in the near future.

Calibration is automatic so you don’t have to manually recalibrate every time you move the projector around. Epson includes two electronic pens as part of the package. Two people can use the pens and work interactively on a presentation at the same time. Combined with the tabletop configuration, this dual-pen feature allows for greater flexibility and enhanced interaction.

The Ultra-short throw feature lets you project images as large as 100” (along the diagonal) by placing the projector less than 13” away from the projection screen. The resulting image is without shadows and there is no loss of brightness/clarity. Installation and setup is fairly straightforward. The projector’s lamp is good for around 4,000 hours.


The Epson BrightLink 485Wi WXGA Projector with Mount is a great way to make interactive presentations.
MSRP: $2,199
