VESA mounting standard

VESA standard was introduced to standardize the wall mounts and provide universal mounts for any TV or display regardless of the manufacturer or the model. Several different standards specifying the layout of mounting holes at the rear device panel are used. The standard used depends on the device weight and dimensions. The distance between the mounting holes is given in millimetres. If the vertical and horizontal holes are arranged at the same distance from each other, a single dimension is given (e.g. VESA 100). If those differ, both dimensions must be given. The first value always denotes width (e.g. VESA 200x100).

Delta offers a wide range of wall and desk mounts with different weight limits and angle adjustment modes. Two example mounts and their applications are shown below (Fig. 2 and 3).

The mount is attached to the device depending on the location and required adjustment range. The budget mounts offer limited vertical adjustment range, while other mounts with a swivel design offer adjustment in all planes. The higher the weight limit of the mount, the larger the distance between the mounting holes and the larger the display device supported by the mount.
