There’s more to setting up your new TV than just figuring out how to get the best picture quality and getting your favorite streaming apps. Where you put the TV in the room has a big effect on how you watch it.
It doesn’t have to be on a TV stand. Feel free to use the wall space instead of the feet that come with the box for a number of reasons. By mounting your TV, you can change the angle of the screen, make more room for furniture, and make the set safer for kids because it’s less likely to fall over.
From one of the best OLED TVs to a less expensive set that costs less than £500, wall brackets can fit all TV sizes. They are easy to install because the back has pre-built holes (this is called VESA; more on that below). Some don’t let you move the TV, while others let you tilt, spin, or turn it all the way around.
As new technologies like 3D, LED, and 4K come out, you’ll want one. You’ll also want a wall bracket that fits your TV perfectly and does the job. You’ve come to the right place; we have the largest selection of wall brackets online, so you’re sure to find the right one for you. We’ve stood behind all of Vogel’s goods for 5 years, so it’s hard to find a better deal anywhere else.
In the TV bracket business, VESA wall mount is the standard for the holes that are spaced out on the back of the screen. 75mm x 75mm, 100mm x 100mm, 200mm x 100mm, 200mm x 200mm, 400mm x 200mm, 400mm x 400mm, 600mm x 400mm, and 800mm x 600mm VESA hole spacing are the norm.
A TV wall mount can be used to mount a 3D, LED, or 4K TV. There are many types of mounts available. We have a lot of flat mounts and tilt-and-swivel mounts. These are the TV brackets for you if you want a sleek, modern look. Because they have two moving arms, cantilever brackets are the best TV brackets because you can put them flat against the wall or pull them out for a better view. On the left side of the menu, you can find all types of mounts at TV Wall Brackets.
What does VESA stand for?
It stands for the Video Electronics Guidelines Association, which is made up of more than 300 companies that worked together to set VESA guidelines for the consumer electronics business. One of these standards covers the mounting hole shapes on the back of your TV. This standard is sometimes called the Flat Display Mounting Interface (FDMI) or the VESA Mounting Interface Standard (MIS). To make sure that their products are compatible with one another, all significant TV and VESA wall mount manufacturers use these standard screw-hole settings.
How to Find Out What TV Size VESA It Is
Most of the time, the user manual or the manufacturer’s website will tell you what size VESA your TV is. If nothing else works, these three easy steps will let you measure it yourself:
- Find the horizontal distance between the holes on the left and right sides
- Find the height difference between the holes at the top and bottom.
- Change your measurements from inches to millimeters (1 inch = 25.4 mm).
Most of the time, VESA standards are shown in millimeters, and they are read from left to right, starting with the horizontal measurement and ending with the vertical measurement. This means that if the space between the fixing holes on your TV is 400 mm wide and 200 mm high, then your VESA size is 400×200.
Changes to VESA
It’s possible that the VESA standard for your TV doesn’t quite match what you saw above. It may have the word “MIS” in it instead. In this case, this is just a way to show certain hole shapes. Some common MIS versions are:
- MIS-D: 75×75 or 100×100. It is usually used for TVs and computer monitors that are smaller.
- MIS-E: 200×100. The MIS-F has a range of square VESA sizes, from 200×200 to 1000×1000.
There will be a number on these to confirm the size, like MIS-F 600 for a 600×600 VESA grid.
Different kinds of wall mounts
There are different kinds of TV wall mounts, from ones that can be adjusted almost infinitely to ones that stay in place. The person who wants to use the brackets should decide which type to use based on their needs. Some mounts let you move the TV so that you can see it better from different places. You can set the best position on some of them while still staying close to the wall. Here are the basic types and what they’re used for:
- Flat mount: Most of the time, the flat mount is also the least expensive. It is the most basic mount. The TV is held as close to the wall as 1 inch. With a flat wall mount, you can’t change the angle of the TV screen; it stays flat against the wall. For plasma TVs, which have the biggest viewing angles both horizontally and vertically, this can be a great choice.
- Tilt mount: This wall mount lets you change the TV’s vertical angle, but the tilt function moves it farther away from the wall. In most cases, this can be at least 6 cm. This TV mount is often put high on the wall of a bedroom so that you can watch TV in bed or above a fireplace. If you’re in a room with a lot of light, the angle change can help block out the light reflecting off the screen.
- Tandem/spin mount: This type of wall mount is great for TVs that need to be turned toward seating areas because it can swivel from side to side. It also works well in rooms with different places to watch.
- Articulating mount: This flexible, multidimensional TV mount can turn and move the most with the most options. The arm can move the TV a few inches away from the wall when it’s being used, giving you a better view. When the TV is not being used, the arm folds back against the wall.
There is no one type of mount that meets VESA wall mount standards. These standards make sure that the equipment is installed safely and avoid accidents where fallen gadgets could damage the equipment or hurt someone.
