The Epson BrightLink 585Wi 3300-Lumen WXGA Ultra-Short Throw 3LCD Projector delivers 3300 lumens of white, color, and interactive brightness with a low noise level of only 28 dB when using the Eco mode. To help ensure sharp detail with deep blacks and brilliant whites, the BrightLink 585Wi provides an impressive 10,000:1 contrast ratio. The projector also features high-definition WXGA 1280 x 800 native resolution, a 3LCD, 3-chip projection system, LAN connectivity for remote management/control, and a 245W UHE lamp that features a life of up to 6000 hours in Eco mode. It also supports optional wireless iOS/Android mobile device connectivity and wireless LAN hook-up thanks to a separately sold wireless module. Epson's free iProjection App for iOS or Android is also required for wireless smartphone/tablet connection.
The projector features an ultra short throw ratio of just 0.27 to 0.37:1 (digital zoom only). This means you'll be able to project a full 100" diagonal image with the projector approximately a foot away from the screen. Short-throw projectors also provide relief from the blinding light and annoying shadows that are common with regular projectors. For connectivity, the BrightLink 585Wi features dual HDMI inputs, one of which supports MHL mobile device connectivity. There are VGA, composite, and S-video inputs as well. Besides the 16W mono speaker, the projector has three audio inputs, a microphone input, and an audio output jack for sending the audio signal through an external speaker system.
The BrightLink 585Wi is highlighted by a myriad of interactive projection features. It comes with two interactive pens, which allow two users to annotate simultaneously anywhere on the surface of the projected image. The interactive pens allow you to turn almost any smooth, lightly-colored surface into an interactive drawing and note taking solution. You can also use this model for computer-less presentations. A USB port facilitates projection of your photos, videos, and data files from a USB storage device. USB connectivity lets you project directly from compatible document cameras as well. Other notable projector features include convenient collaboration for BYOD classrooms and compatibility with top interactive software. For added installation convenience, the BrightLink 585Wi even ships with a wall mount.
