Epson Ships Interactive Projector Bundle

Epson has launched a new presentation bundle built around its high-end BrightLink 455Wi interactive projector. The bundle, called the BrightLink 455Wi-T, couples the 455Wi with a Copernicus Education table mount and an optional RM Easiteach license.

The BrightLink 455Wi is an ultra-short-throw LCD projector, which, when using the Copernicus table mount, is capable of producing an 60-inch image (diagonal) to turn a table surface into a large interactive workspace from less than 10 inches from the surf

The projector itself offers a native WXGA resolution (1,280 x 800 pixels) and a brightness of 2,500 lumens. It also includes two digital IR pens and pen tray for interacting with projected images.

Other features include:

  • Built-in closed captioning decoder;
  • Microphone input and 12 watt speaker;
  • RJ-45 for Ethernet-based LAN connectivity, providing remote control and monitoring; and
  • EasyMP Monitor software for broadcasting alerts.

The BrightLink 455Wi-T is available now for $1,699 through Epson's Brighter Futures program for education or $2,199 retail.

A version of the bundle that includes RM Easiteach is available for $1,799. RM Easiteach is a classroom software suite that's designed to serve as a single platform integrating functionality between whiteboards, classroom clickers (interactive polling devices), and other technologies. It's designed for a variety of grade levels and can be used to create both lessons and activities, and it includes pre-designed content packs covering math, English/language arts, science, and geography. It also allows for existing lessons to be adapted from Excel, Word, and Power Point, as well as video files.
