Our mounts are compatible with virtually every television on the market. The television manufacturers use two different
standards for designing the back of their TVs so they can be mounted.
The first standard is called VESA. This dictates the exact placement of the holes on the back of the TV that the mount
attaches to. Typically, LCD flat-panel TVs follow VESA standards. There are several sizes of TVs and mounts with
the VESA standards (75 mm x 75mm; 100mm x 100mm; 200mm x 100mm; 200mm x 200mm, etc.). When purchasing
a TV that follows VESA guidelines, it is important to choose a mount that uses the same VESA standard as the TV.
The other critical element in choosing the right mount is to compare the weight of the TV to the weight
rating of the mount.
The second standard is not really a "standard" at all. Rather, TV manufacturers who do not follow the VESA standards
place their mounting holes on the back of the their TV in random wherever it is easiest for them to engineer. For these TVs,
we makes "universal" mounts. This means that there are brackets that can be adjusted back and forth to properly
align the many mounting holes. When mounting a TV with a random hole pattern, in additional to choosing a "universal"
mount, it is critical to also compare the weight of the TV to the weight rating of the mount.
