If we have encountered with need to Mount on a wall or other surface, computer monitor or a TV surely also we have encountered with the term VESA, and most likely we don’t know well what to do reference this symbol, or what its scope.
Basically, VESA is a standard that defines how we should mount a monitor or TV safely and properly by a bracket, to which relies on a pattern of holes, which correspond with the size and weight of the panel, which are located on the back of it, and that also match the holes on the bracket.
Currently, the VESA norm is widespread, and is virtually impossible to find a TV or computer monitor, is LED, LCD or any other technology, not available on the back of a set of holes to allow a stand-mounted.
When you created the VESA standard?
In reality, the standard that allows us to assemble a panel to the wall is called “Flat Display Mounting Interface” or FDMI, whose translation to the Spanish is “flat device mounting interface”, and that is part of the family of specifications promoted by organizing Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA), which sought to standardize also another type of technology.
Specifically, FDMI standard was created in 1997, and included everything you need so the manufacturers began to add to their panels the set of holes needed to hang it from a stand, which correspond in distance to the weight and size of your TV or monitor.
VESA stands for monitors and TVs
Is for this reason that in the market, we can find all kinds of support, designed specifically to fit a particular type of panel. Although most of the supports include several games, which allows a degree of flexibility, this does not mean that we can hang a TV or monitor 22 inch stand ready for a 42-inch device, since we would run the irrigation of plugging the connectors of the same.
How do I know if my TV or monitor is VESA-compliant?
As mentioned, it is virtually impossible to find a monitor or TV set or monitor that is not prepared to support VESA, however, might check it unequivocally: If the back of your device has a square or rectangle formed by holes for mounting with screws, it is compatible with VESA.
What kind of bracket VESA I need to hang up my TV or monitor?
Fortunately, the answer to this question is simple, and is enough to measure the distance between the holes of the mounting bolts. If the distance is equivalent to 75 x 75 mm, we must buy a support corresponding to that measure, however, is never more to ask the seller about our specific needs of model and size, and that the merchant can advise us better. Check here for more.
Below these lines you can find a list of measures between VESA, mounting holes that will allow us to have a more rough idea of the support we need.
