VESA Mount: Standardized Solution for Mounting Flat Panel Displays

A VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) mount is a standard for mounting flat panel monitors, TVs, and other displays. Developed to ensure that all displays could be mounted using a standardized system. Secure monitors, TVs, and even home appliances onto these brackets for:

  • Preventing neck and back pains
  • Improved ergonomics
  • Saving a lot of space

… and much more!

What is a VESA Mount?

The abbreviation VESA stands for Video Electronics Standards Association. This Association has determined a standard for attaching flat screens, such as LCD, TVs, digital signage displays or computer monitors, to mounting brackets. A bracket that adheres to the VESA standard is called a VESA Mount. There are different types available, such as the wall mount, ceiling mount or desk mount.

VESA Mounts come in different shapes and sizes and are divided into different classifications: MIS, or Mounting Interface Standards. These vary from MIS-A to MIS-F. Different VESA Patterns fall into these categories, such as the VESA 100×100 or VESA 200×200 brackets.

The benefits of using a VESA Mount

One of the primary benefits of using VESA mounts is that they provide a safe and secure way to mount displays. With a VESA mount, you can be sure that your display will not fall or be knocked over. Additionally, VESA mounts allow you to free up valuable desk or table space by mounting your display on a wall or arm, which can help to improve ergonomics by allowing you to position your display at the optimal height and angle for your viewing comfort. In general their benefits include:

  • They save lots of space on desks or in your interior
  • They are very easy to install with just 4-8 screws needed to mount a display
  • They are very cost-efficient: they often cost a lot less than a piece of furniture
  • They improve ergonomics drastically, for example with computer monitors

Where to use them?

VESA mounts are suitable for a wide range of applications, from home entertainment setups to professional workstations. They are commonly used in offices, schools, hospitals, and other settings where displays are used for presentations or digital signage. They are also popular in home theater setups and gaming setups, as they provide a streamlined and organized way to display your entertainment system.

How to mount the displays with a VESA Mount?

Mounting a display using a VESA mount is a straightforward process. Most VESA mounts consist of a wall plate or arm that attaches to the back of the display, as well as a bracket that attaches to the wall or arm. The bracket and wall plate are then secured together using screws or bolts. It is important to ensure that the VESA mount you choose is compatible with your display’s VESA pattern, which refers to the spacing of the mounting holes on the back of the display.
