Epson Announces All-in-One Whiteboards for BrightLink Pro-SeriesThe All-In-One Whiteboard Includes Da-Lite's IDEA Screen, Mount and Trim to Offer a Premium Look for BrightLink Pro
Designed to match the white color and sleek design of the BrightLink Pro, the new All-in-One Collaborative Whiteboard solution offers a premium look and all-in-one functionality by integrating a Da-Lite IDEA screen with 2.5 gain for superior image quality and wall mount, as well as the finger touch unit and control panel on the BrightLink Pro 1430Wi. Available in 87- and 100-inches, the new kit is easy to install – it hangs like a picture frame and image size is easy to adjust with preset heights – and the Da-Lite IDEA screen can also be used as a dry-erase board.
"We partnered with Da-Lite and Chief to design this new All-in-One Whiteboard solution to offer a premium look and easy installation to complement our BrightLink Pro-Series," said Sean Gunduz, senior product manager, Projectors, Epson America, Inc. "Our customers can now easily implement a full meeting room upgrade with a 100-inch board and BrightLink Pro for under $5,000*."
About BrightLink Pro
Designed to revolutionize meeting rooms and classrooms, the Epson BrightLink Pro 1430Wi and 1420Wi are true collaboration devices, integrating the utility of a whiteboard, projector and interactive display to transform 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. Using the Whiteboard Sharing Tool, up to 15 participants can join a whiteboarding session directly from any mobile device(2) with a web browser or from another BrightLink Pro – without using a software or app.
Unlike traditional whiteboards, users can add up to 50 blank pages for virtually unlimited writing space, as well as save, print and email notes. For users editing and annotating on top of existing image or document files, these models also deliver object tools such as copy, paste, crop, and rotate for ease-of-use. The BrightLink Pro 1430Wi supports gestures(3), up to six fingers for annotations, as well as dual-pen support. It's also ideal as a videoconferencing display, offering split-screen(4) capabilities to view two sources side-by-side.
Pricing and Availability
The new All-in-One Whiteboard is currently available through all Epson and Da-Lite VARs and resellers. The 87-inch solution is $1,599* and the 100-inch solution is $2,279*. For additional information, features and BrightLink Pro demo and how-to videos, visit www.epson.com/blpro.
