Epson’s EB-1485Fi ultra-short throw interactive laser projector

Malaysia, 3 August 2020 - Epson, the number one projector manufacturer in the world[1],  launched the Epson EB-1485Fi ultra-short throw interactive laser projector that serves as an ultra-wide interactive digital whiteboard, bringing enhanced productivity and collaboration in classrooms and meeting rooms.

Boasting 5,000 lumens of equal color and white brightness[2], the super bright Full HD[3] laser display can project ultra-wide images of up to 120-inch diagonally at the new 16:6 ratio, maximising the existing whiteboard. Enabling immersive collaborations, it transforms any flat surface into an instant digital whiteboard that does not require any PC or software.

Featuring enterprise-level security through integrated wireless networking, users can draw, save, print and email content directly from the interactive projector. They can also wirelessly share content simultaneously from multiple devices with Miracast.

The built-in edge-blending function allows users to connect two networked EB-1485Fi projectors together to achieve dual-screen seamless interactivity or connect up to four projectors to project a large panoramic image (without interactivity). With vivid displays that capture every fine detail, the EB-1485Fi allows the audience to stay engaged and captivated.

The 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. This effectively reduces the installation time, so that users can better focus on tasks that matters.

With a maintenance-free laser light source offering 20,000 light hours[4] and at 5,000 lumens of equal color and white brightness, the Epson projectors deliver bright, true-to-life images for impactful presentations, even in well-lit rooms.

“Epson’s latest projector is an all-in-one productivity tool providing users a seamless digital experience. With the ultrawide interactive canvas offering bright images in high ambient light environments, it aims to inspire creativity and offers better readability, bringing increased engagement and collaborative experiences in the office or classroom. Through our laser projector, we aim to connect people and technology with solutions for creative ideas, displays and collaboration,” said Daisuke Hori, Managing Director of Epson Malaysia.
