Two users can write simultaneously with dual pen support. Mount BrightLink 436Wi on a wall or set it on a table or desk. This portable projector can be taken from room to room. Setup is easy with auto calibration and no PC driver to install. The projector features HDMI connectivity, a built-in 16 W speaker and microphone jack. Get brilliant image quality and interactivity with the BrightLink 436Wi, from the #1 selling projector company.

Amazing Image Quality

3x Brighter Colors with Epson
3x Brighter Colors with Epson
Brilliant image quality requires high color brightness. Epson 3LCD projectors have 3x Brighter Colors than leading competitive projectors. Delivering 3000 lumens of color brightness (color light output) and 3000 lumens of white brightness (white light output), the BrightLink 436Wi uses 3LCD, 3-chip technology for brilliant images with true-to-life color.

One brightness measurement (lumens) is not enough. A projector's specification needs to show both high color brightness and high white brightness. If color 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.

(Epson 3LCD and 1-chip DLP competitor). Both projectors are set to their brightest mode.

3LCD3LCD — The #1 projection technology in the world

  • All 3LCD projectors have both high color brightness and high white brightness
  • All 3LCD projectors have 3 chips
  • 25% lower power consumption for lower energy costs
  • 20 years of road-tested reliability

E-TORL lamp
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.

PC-free — switch sources and keep writing
Increase the value and utilization of your multimedia devices. Use built-in annotation tools, or connect via a wired or wireless LAN to unlock powerful new features. Annotate, from an iPad/iPhone/iPod touch, Android device, 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-free.

PC-free — switch sources and keep writing

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.)

Interactivity built for two — dual pen support

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.

Short-throw vs. long-throw distance

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.

Mount on a wall or take with you wherever you go

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.

Ultra-flexible interactivity with versatility
2x more active area than typical 7" board (4:3 aspect ratio);
77% more than typical 87" board (16:10 aspect ratio)

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.

Ultra versatile

Why is Color Brightness Important?

What should you look for?

Look for two lumens specifications, one for Color Brightness and a separate White Brightness spec, when comparing projector models. To select a projector with vibrant color, crisp detail and realistic skin tones, look for both High Color Brightness and High White Brightness.

Low Color Brightness can result in images that are 1/3 as bright.

Actual photographs of side-by-side projected images from an identical signal source. Price, resolution and white brightness are similar for both projectors (Epson 3LCD and 1-chip DLP competitor). Both projectors are set to their brightest mode.

What is Color Brightness?

Color Brightness is a scientifically set global standard that measures a projector's Color Light Output. It was concluded that there are such significant differences in color brightness performance among different projector models and brands that color should be measured separately to provide consumers with fair and accurate information.

What does it mean to you?

The Color Brightness specification allows you to make a more informed decision when purchasing a projector. Color Brightness (or Color Light Output) measures the brightness of the colors in a projected image, not just the brightness of white. This is critically important as most projectors are used for color content, and color is a critical component of picture quality.

Where did the spec come from?

A committee of display experts, after extensive scientific evaluation, established a global standard – the International Display Metrology Standard (IDMS). The standard, published in June 2012, IDMS version 1.03, covers the three leading international display standards organizations worldwide – the Society for Information Display (SID), the Visual Electronics Standards Association (VESA) and the International Consortium Display Metrology (ICDM).

Frequently Asked Questions

Does “lumens” cover both Color Brightness and White Brightness?

No. Unless you see a separate specification for Color Brightness, you are only getting the White Brightness of the projector. Color Brightness may be 1/3 of the brightness stated.

How is Color Brightness determined?

Color Brightness (Color Light Output) is measured in accordance with IDMS 15.4.

Can there be a difference between Color Brightness and White Brightness?

Yes. For example, a projector with 3000 lumens of White Brightness may only have 800 lumens of Color Brightness. Image quality can vary greatly, even among projectors at similar price points and with traditional specifications – you may not get what you paid for. Color Brightness may be 1/3 of the White Brightness stated. Look for separate Color Brightness and White Brightness specifications to ensure you get the best overall image quality for everything you display.

Are LED lumens different than regular lumens?

No. A lumen is an international standard measurement of light output, regardless of the light source.

Why can't I find Color Brightness as a published specification?

Not all projectors have both High Color Brightness and High White Brightness, and many manufacturers may not want you to know their projectors may be 1/3 as bright when it comes to color.
