Epson will ship a new high-resolution, ultra-short-throw interactive projector in April, the BrightLink Pro 1410Wi.

The LCD-based BrightLink Pro 1410Wi, like other Epson BrightLink models, is a projector that's designed to turn any surface into an interactive whiteboard. Unlike other BrightLink models, the BrightLink Pro 1410Wi has a throw ratio of 0.27—0.37 in its native 16:10 mode, allowing it to produce a 60-inch image from a distance of 12.5 inches. (Other Epson BrightLink models are also short-throw, but their throw ratios are 0.48 or more.)

The 1410Wi offers a native WXGA resolution (1,280 x 800 pixels), a contrast ratio of 3,000:1 and a brightness of 3,100 lumens. Other features include:

  • Built-in wireless (802.11b/g/n) standard;
  • Wired (RJ-45) networking;
  • 1.35x zoom;
  • Horizontal and vertical keystone correction ±3 degrees;
  • Computer-free annotation;
  • Dual-user mode;
  • Two interactive pens included;
  • Security features, including Kensington lock slot, security anchor bar, and password protection;
  • 10 watt mono speaker; and
  • Lamp life of up to 5,000 hours in economy mode.

It measures 14.5" (w) x 14.8" (d) x 7.5" (h) with feet retracted and weighs in at 13 pounds without the slide plate.

AV inputs include HDMI, RGB (mini D-sub 15-pin), DisplayPort, USB type B for display, composite, stereo RCA jacks, and dual stereo minijacks. AV outputs include RGB and stereo minijack. Networking and control ports include USB type A and B, LAN (RJ-45), RS-232c, IR, and 802.11b/g/n WiFi.

The BrightLink Pro 1410Wi will be available in April for $2,999 as a stand-alone unit. Complete packages including Chief mounting systems will run $3,999 to $4,999. Additional details can be found on Epson's site.
