New Epson BrightLink Bundle Makes Tabletops Interactive for Educators and Creative Professionals
BrightLink 455Wi-T Combines BrightLink Interactive Projector and
Table Mount to Provide Added Flexibility for Creating Ideal Learning Environment
LONG BEACH, Calif. – Sept. 7, 2011 – Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide1, today introduced the BrightLink™ 455Wi-T, a bundle combining the Epson® BrightLink 455Wi interactive projector and a table mount from Copernicus Education Products, to turn almost any tabletop into an interactive learning area. With the included table mount, the BrightLink 455Wi creates an interactive space up to 60-inches diagonal and allows for collaborative working environments or interactive lessons, while providing greater accessibility for younger users or people using wheelchairs.
“The BrightLink 455Wi projector and table mount bundle offers an easy and affordable way to bring collaboration and flexibility to users working in a variety of applications ranging from hospitality and design to student-centered, project-based learning,” said Claudine Wolas-Shiva, senior product manager, Epson America, Inc. “As the use of interactive tables continues to grow, the BrightLink 455Wi-T provides a cost effective solution compared to the many specialized monitors and tables available today, while providing a larger workspace.”
The BrightLink 455Wi-T high-performance projector + pen combination integrates interactive functionality in one machine. The interactive projector is an ultra-short throw solution and offers users image size flexibility and multiple options to project onto a whiteboard, wall, table, or other smooth, light-colored, hard surface. BrightLink offers installation flexibility by providing a wide range of XGA and WXGA usable interactive areas, and features 2,500 lumens color and white light output2 and native WXGA resolution (16:10 aspect ratio) for full compatibility with widescreen notebooks and visual content.
The Epson BrightLink 455Wi-T is currently available for an estimated street price of $2,199* ($1,699 for Brighter Futures) through select dealers on a state-by-state basis. It is also offered with RM Easiteach through Brighter Futures for $1,799.
