Epson BrightLink 485Wi


The Epson BrightLink 485Wi business projector is more expensive than the competition, but the price includes two pens, a mount, and the ability to use the interactive whiteboard with any image source.

Ultra short throw. Interactivity works at full brightness. Can use interactive feature with any input, not just computers

Have to touch screen to interact, which means screen has to have a hard backing. No 3D support
