Choosing a TV wall bracket
What is VESA?
VESA is a set of standards for the manufacturing of flat screen televisions and PC monitors. Most manufacturers comply with this standard by adhering to an industry wide “hole pattern” on the back of their displays for mounting purposes.
There are 4 mounting holes on the back of your TV (see below). The distance between these mounting holes determine the VESA compatibility of your TV.
How do I know my TVs VESA standard?
Look for the 4 mounting holes on the back of television (see picture below). Measure the distance between them both horizontally and vertically (in mm). This is your VESA Standard.
A VESA hole pattern is measured in both horizontal and vertical distance between mounting holes. For example: VESA 200 means your TV mounting holes are 200mm apart horizontally and 200mm apart vertically. VESA 200x100 means your TV mounting holes are 200mm apart horizontally and 100mm apart vertically.
How can I tell if my TV is VESA compliant?
Most user manuals indicate the exact VESA standard necessary for mounting. Some just state that VESA mounts are supported. If this is the case, simply purchase a wall mount within the TV size guidelines of your TV. The vast majority of TVs are VESA compliant, there are some models that are not – if your TV is not VESA compliant you can use a UNIVERSAL type mounting bracket.
