The VESA

Mounting Interface Standard (MIS)

All Vogel’s TV wall mounts are compatible with the VESA Interface Standard. This page will provide an explanation on what this VESA interface is and why it is important to know about it in case the TV will be mounted on the wall.

What is VESA?

The VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) interface represents the distance between the four mounting holes on the back of a TV (displayed as “horizontal distance x vertical distance”). This interface is known for mounting flat panel monitors, televisions, and other displays to stands or wall mounts, which is implemented on most modern monitors and televisions. Originally, the VESA interface pattern includes steps of 100mm, both horizontally and vertically. However, nowadays TV brands started using deviating patterns, such as 430x330 or 420x310. TVs up to 40 inch commonly have VESA 200x200. VESA 400x400 is prevalent for TVs up to 55 inch. TVs bigger than 55 inch usually have VESA 600x400 or even 800x400.

Where can I find my VESA size?

Measuring the distance between the (four) horizontal and vertical holes on the back of your TV is the fastest and easiest way to find out the VESA size of your TV. The first distance taken into account by the VESA interface is the horizontal one. The second distance is the vertical distance between the holes. These two measurements result in the following format: HORIZONTAL x VERTICAL VESA interface pattern. Find a visual example below, where the VESA interface pattern is equal to 75x75.

Is there a wall mount for the VESA pattern on my TV?

Vogel’s wall mounts are matched with TVs based on their inch size, width, height, depth, weight, and (of course) the VESA pattern. A matching tool was developed in order to find the best wall mount for your TV, which can be found here. This tool provides all the matching wall mounts that fit your TV.
