3x Brighter Colors with Epson®1
3LCD — The #1 projection technology
in the world
Brilliant image quality requires high color
brightness (color light output), and Epson
3LCD projectors have 3 x Brighter Colors
than leading competitive projectors 1.
• All 3LCD projectors have both high color
brightness and high white brightness
One brightness measurement (lumens)
is not enough. A projector‘s specification
needs to show both high color brightness
and high white brightness. If color
B R I G H T N E SS 2
brightness is lower than white brightness,
images may be dark, dull and lose detail. If
not provided, be sure to ask for a projector’s
color brightness specification.

Long-life lamp that’s easy and affordable
to replace
This high-efficiency E-TORL® lamp
lasts up to 4000 hours
in Normal
Mode and up to 6000 hours in
ECO Mode5, at a replacement cost
that is incredibly affordable. It can
be replaced quickly and easily,
without having to uninstall the
projector from the wall.
The best-selling projectors in the world
Built with image quality and reliability in mind, Epson projectors enhance communication and
inspire collaboration, while offering a low cost of ownership. From long-throw projectors designed
for traditional educational settings to ultra-short-throw and all-in-one solutions built for progressive
classrooms, Epson has the model made for you.

Android device
Mount on a wall or take with you wherever
you go
Do more, all with one versatile projector. The BrightLink 436Wi
offers the flexibility you need for interactive solutions virtually
anywhere. Place it on a table or desktop and take this portable
projector from one venue to the next. Or, permanently install
it using the optional wall mount, for brilliant presentations with
reduced shadowing. Just calibrate the projector one time,
and you’re ready for all your future presentations. Whether
you mount the BrightLink 436Wi to a wall or project from a
tabletop, you can instantly transform any wall into an interactive
learning surface.
Increase the value and utilization of your multimedia devices.
Use built-in annotation tools, or connect via a wired or wireless6
LAN to unlock powerful new features. Annotate, from an iPad/
iPhone®/iPod touch®, Android device3, DVD/Blu-ray player
or document camera. Teachers are free to connect existing
resources already in their environment, while inviting students
up to engage directly with the content. You can even annotate
without any device at all; use the built-in tools, PC-free3.
Interactivity built for two — dual pen support
Now two users can work simultaneously, or independently,
with dual pen support and Epson’s Easy Interactive Tools (EIT2)
Software. Students can work together seamlessly to share ideas
and information. (One pen included; additional pen and pen
extension sold separately.)
Ultra-flexible interactivity with versatility
While interactive whiteboards are limited to a predetermined
height and width, BrightLink has no such constraints. Set the
size of the interactive area to fit your available space, from
53" – 116" diagonally. Use one type of hardware to fit in various
types of spaces, and reduce the complexity and cost of
managing and maintaining multiple types of equipment.
Short-throw vs. long-throw distance
BrightLink’s short-throw projector design eliminates many of
the common problems of interactive systems, such as
shadowing and eye glare. With an incredibly efficient 0.48"
throw ratio, BrightLink 436Wi allows you to project extra-large
interactive images up to 116" with the projector 48" away from
the image surface.

2x more active area than typical 7" board (4:3 aspect ratio);

Significant reduction in
shadow interference
Ultra versatile
The BrightLink 436Wi works on almost any surface — an
existing whiteboard, a flat wall or a chalkboard with dry-erase
paint. Interactive capabilities are built into the projector and
not into a board; almost any surface will work. Teachers
can keep using their dry-erase boards with the BrightLink
projector. Save money by not having to hassle with
uninstalling perfectly good boards.
Promethean ActivInspire™
Designed for use in educational settings, ActivInspire software
enables teachers to engage their students in interactive activities
that are sure to grab their attention. Each BrightLink purchased
with this optional state-of-the-art software includes a 5-seat

1 Compared to leading 1-chip DLP business and education projectors based on NPD data,
July 2011 through June 2012. Color brightness (color light output) measured in accordance
with IDMS 15.4. Color brightness will vary depending on usage conditions.
2 Color brightness (color light output) and white brightness (white light output) will vary
depending on usage conditions. Color light output measured in accordance with IDMS 15.4;
white light output measured in accordance with ISO 21118.
3 Functionality may vary depending on hardware, application, and/or provider restrictions or
limitations. Devices and cables not included.
4 Data source:, Jan. 2013. Average of 1128 shipping models for which
the manufacturers provided lumens and total power data, all resolutions and brightness
levels. Energy efficiency was measured as wattage per lumen. It was measured for both
3LCD and 1-chip projectors in each of five brightness segments. 3 LCD projectors averaged
less required electricity per lumen in each of the five segments.
5 ECO Mode is 6000 hours. Normal Mode is 4000 hours. Lamp life will vary depending upon
mode selected, environmental conditions and usage. Lamp brightness decreases over time.
6 Requires optional 802.11 network adaptor.
7 Check your owner’s manual to determine if a separate wireless LAN module must be
purchased separately to enable wireless connection on your Epson projector. Epson
projectors can be networked either through the Ethernet port on the projector (check model
specifications for availability) or via a wireless connection. Not all Epson projectors are able
to be networked. Availability varies depending on model.
8 Works only with Epson projectors that support presentation over the network capability.
