Epson introduces its first 5,000 lumen interactive collaboration displays with the new EB-1480FI and EB-1485FI. These innovative new models can scale their display size based on the usage environment to help promote agile working, while increasing productivity and communication.


The leading EB-1485Fi delivers impactful sessions with a multi-touch display of up to 100” (16:9 standalone), up to 120” (wide display – 16:6) or 155” using Epson’s DuoLink feature where two Epson interactive displays can be combined as one display using edge blending to offer one large agile working space – perfect for any user looking to transform their digital experience with Epson. It comes with an array of powerful built-in connectivity options, both wireless and wired, including HDBaseT and HDMI out, along with edge blending and a slim design finger-touch unit, ideal for any modern working environment. The display also comes with a PC slot to allow user to enjoy strong connectivity, focusing on customisable solutions for each working environment.


Simone Martorina, business manager for visual instruments, Epson UK, says, “At Epson we’re focused on the user experience and delivering the right solution based on a user’s needs. With our latest interactive displays, users can totally transform workplaces with these large, scalable displays that enrich collaboration and engagement, and promote greater knowledge sharing with colleagues, clients or delegates using the latest and versatile connectivity options. Our displays are anti-reflective and anti-glare ensuring content legibility is guaranteed even on a scalable display size of 100”.


“Having meeting spaces equipped with the right technology and solutions helps promote stronger team ethics, increase productivity, enhance creative thinking, and promote logic and reasoning. Furthermore, it helps to drive employee motivation in or out the office and increases users’ technology skills focused around digital transformation in the workplace.”


The other model in the range, the EB-1480Fi, is the ideal solution for education users that have Epson lamp displays and want to upgrade to a Full HD laser display, as they can be used with legacy mounts, and finger-touch units already in place. This means users can upgrade their current Epson display at a fraction of the cost and take advantage of a new and more advanced laser display solution, benefiting from the latest interactive features with a seamless installation.


Both models feature an intuitive and easy-to-use user interface, with a touch-enabled home screen and secure user collaboration tools. Compatibility with Windows, Office 365 suite and iOS allows the use of Office applications via PCs and tablets. In addition, up to four video sources can be displayed simultaneously on one display, such as video conferencing and presentations for meetings. The Epson iProjection App is available to download for free, providing seamless wireless connectivity and control from multiple devices and platforms.


Once installed, both displays can be used for up to 20,000 hours in normal mode, and up to 30,000 hours in quiet mode, with the additional peace of mind of a five-year warranty. This helps to reduce running maintenance costs, and means users can 'fit and forget', focussing on their presentation or lesson instead.

We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.


We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.


FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
