What is VESA? And how do you measure the VESA of your TV?

All of Vogel's TV wall mounts are compatible with the VESA Interface Standard. This page explains how to measure your TV's VESA size yourself.

What does VESA actually mean?

The VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) interface is the distance between the four mounting holes on the back of a TV (shown as 'horizontal distance x vertical distance'). This interface is commonly used to mount screens on wall mounts or stands.

Originally, the VESA interface pattern consisted of 100 mm horizontal and vertical steps. Nowadays, TV brands use a variety of patterns, such as 430x330, 420x330 or 420x310.

For ease of use:

  • TVs up to 40 inches usually have a VESA of 200x200
  • VESA 400x400 is common for TVs up to 55 inches
  • TVs larger than 55 inches usually have a VESA of 600x400 or even 800x400.

How can you find the 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 the VESA size for your TV. The first distance stated for a VESA interface is always the horizontal distance. The second distance is the vertical distance between the holes. 

These two measurements produce the following format: HORIZONTAL x VERTICAL VESA interface pattern.

The video below shows a quick and easy way to measure your VESA.
