Epson Announces New BrightLink Interactive Laser Displays for Education

Epson logo

Epson today introduced the BrightLink® 1485Fi and the BrightLink 1480Fi ultra short-throw interactive laser displays for classrooms and meeting rooms. Leveraging a virtually maintenance-free laser light source, these ultra short-throw, 1080p Full HD2 laser displays offer new 16:6 widescreen display options for turning virtually any flat surface into an instant, ultra-wide interactive digital whiteboard. Epson’s new BrightLink 1485Fi will be on display at InfoComm 2019 in Orlando, Fla. from June 12-14 at Epson’s booth, #2129.

Offering 5,000 lumens of equal color and white brightness, the new BrightLink models provide either a 100-inch 16:9 or new ultra-wide 120-inch 16:6 display, delivering up to 4,732 square inches of images, even in well-lit rooms. The ultra short-throw BrightLink 1485Fi and 1480Fi provide one-step calibration of touch and interactive pens to turn virtually any flat surface into an instant interactive digital whiteboard. In addition, a wall mounted control panel allows for power control, source switching and supports HDBaseT connectivity, reducing the number of cables between a computer and the projector to a single cable for image, audio and interactivity.

The Epson BrightLink 1485Fi and BrightLink 1480Fi combine the utility of a whiteboard, projector and interactive display to transform virtually any flat surface into a digital whiteboard and interactive space that doesn’t require a computer or software. Users simply turn on the projector and start writing, with no PC required. Featuring enterprise-level security via integrated wireless networking, users can save, print and email content directly from the interactive laser display, and wirelessly share content simultaneously from multiple devices with Miracast. In addition, users can connect two networked BrightLink 1485Fi models together for sharing one interactive canvas.

The new BrightLink models include a one-year subscription to SMART Learning Suite for education customers. Epson also offers the Brighter Futures® program, a sales and support initiative available for schools. Brighter Futures offers special pricing, extended Epson limited warranty coverage for a total of five years, dedicated education account managers, and toll-free technical support for all Epson projectors and associated accessories.

The Epson BrightLink 1485Fi and BrightLink 1480Fi will be available in late October 2019. The BrightLink 1480Fi is the replacement model for existing BrightLink users, as it is compatible with current BrightLink mount systems. The BrightLink 1485Fi requires a new mount system and intended for new BrightLink users. The interactive laser displays come with a limited three-year warranty with next business day replacement, including free shipping both ways. For additional information, visit
