Epson has introduced the BrightLink Pro 1410Wi – an ultra-short throw meeting room projector designed to provide increased organizational productivity and efficiency. The BrightLink Pro turns a traditional whiteboard, wall or virtually any flat surface into a new digital surface and offers a variety of features to boost meeting room collaboration, including video conferencing compatibility and remote collaboration.
The BrightLink Pro projector solution can be used as a digital whiteboard, to present and annotate on existing content, and can instantly capture and share newly created content by saving, printing or e-mailing through the network – no computer or special software required. A simple to use, but powerful device, users can power BrightLink Pro on and present, annotate and capture with no technical expertise needed to drive a collaborative instant meeting. With a 100-inch, widescreen display area, users can display presentations and a live meeting at the same time with the split screen option. In addition, users can connect up to four BrightLink Pro units that all reside on the same network, regardless of location, for remote collaboration.
To enhance ease-of-use, the BrightLink Pro comes with a Control Pad, which acts as a convenient USB hub, an extension to USB ports or as a remote control unit. Meeting participants can use the Control Pad to connect to USB thumb drive, a PC or printer. To further streamline meetings, it also offers buttons to power the BrightLink Pro on and off, and to select major functions, including Whiteboard Mode, Source Search, Capture, Print, or Save.
“With the BrightLink Pro 1410Wi, Epson is creating a new category in the display industry with a powerful and simple solution to address a need faced in every meeting,” said Sean Gunduz, product manager, Corporate Projectors, Epson America. “The BrightLink Pro works as a stand-alone appliance, with no computer or software required, making it very simple to use and allowing users to project, collaborate, capture and maximize their productivity.”
In conjunction with Chief, Epson is offering all-in-one mounting solutions with the BrightLink Pro to corporate users that want a sleek finish to match existing conference room décor. These mounting solutions include the BrightLink Pro, mount and whiteboard, bordered by one of three different finishes – a deep cherry, sleek aluminum or beautiful teak – to seamlessly fit in with the existing décor at any corporate setting. Users can also purchase a basic package with the BrightLink Pro and wall mount, with no special finish.
“We’re very excited to partner with Epson to create a completely new integrated solution for customers,” said Derek Derks, business development manager, Chief. “This new all-in-one system combines an Epson BrightLink Pro with Da-Lite screen technology and Chief mounting systems to create a complete installation and superior customer experience.”
The BrightLink Pro 1410Wi offers several features to boost meeting room collaboration, including:
