LONG BEACH, Calif., Dec. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Epson, the number-one selling projector brand worldwide, continues to drive the interactive display market with BrightLink® Pro by building on innovative features for collaborative meetings. With useful digital whiteboard tools, BrightLink Pro makes it easy to capture, save, print, or email without a PC or software. The new BrightLink Pro 1460Ui and 1450Ui interactive displays deliver crisp image quality with Full HD resolution and a bright, readable display up to 100-inches – 3x as big as a 60-inch flat panel. Combined with Epson's advanced 3LCD light engine for bright, vivid colors, the interactive displays result in impactful presentations and productive collaboration.
The new bright 100-inch Full HD BrightLink Pro 1460Ui and 1450Ui interactive displays feature DVI-out connectivity for projecting digital whiteboard content to a larger display, and with the BrightLink Pro 1460Ui, the ability to wirelessly stream content from Android devices or Windows® PCs with Miracast– ideal for video conferencing, large conference rooms, and training rooms.
"Meeting rooms often include a number of tools designed to make collaboration more efficient, such as dry erase boards or digital displays, but these fragmented solutions can fall flat when it comes to productivity," said Remi Del Mar, product manager, Epson America. "With the ability to display bright, high-quality content up to 100-inches, combined with enhanced collaborative whiteboarding tools, the new BrightLink Pro-Series combines meeting room tools into one seamless solution for increased engagement and productivity."
The new series also introduces DuoLink, an extended whiteboard feature enabling users to get twice the collaboration space by utilizing two BrightLink Pros side-by-side.
Whether across the globe or a conference room table, teams can connect and share any type of content using BrightLink Pro, including presentations, ideas, agendas, and data points. Using the Whiteboard Sharing Tool, up to 15 participants can join a whiteboarding session directly from any mobile device with a web browser, or from another BrightLink Pro without a PC.
Designed to simplify how people work together, BrightLink Pro includes an optional portable interactive display surface. The BrightLink Pro All-in-One Interactive Table features a mobile, motorized work surface to increase versatility and application around the office. Teammates can move the BrightLink Pro from room to room and easily project presentations, designs, drafts, illustrations, and animations onto the sleek desktop table.
Climb Real Estate, a fast-growing boutique real estate agency in the San Francisco Bay Area, was in need of a display solution for its office headquarters that would enable a truly collaborative experience for its employees and customers1. Since implementing BrightLink Pro, the team at Climb SF has been able to create a more interactive and productive environment for its customers.
"BrightLink Pro has been the perfect solution for our agents, customers, and team to come together to collaborate, communicate and share information," said Chris Lim, president of Climb Real Estate. "As our residential brokerage continues to grow, collaboration and innovation are at that heart of everything we do. The BrightLink Pro represents a seamless digital experience for better readability, communication and productivity."
