If you are mounting a flat screen, you won't be concerned with the depth of the base, but you will have to know your VESA mounting pattern. This refers to the pattern of screw holes on the back of your screen where the mount will attach. The holes on your screen must match up with the holes on your mount in order to fit. That's why the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) developed a series of standard patterns that manufacturers and consumers can use to match TVs and mounts.
You can find your TV's VESA pattern in the owner's manual, or by looking up the model on the manufacturer's website. Our customer service team is also happy to look up this information for you. A flat panel TV stand typically includes a mount on top of a pole, so this would also require a VESA pattern. Use advanced search to shop our collection by VESA pattern or other specs.
What kind of functionality would you like your TV mount to have? That will depend a lot on where you are mounting it and how you are using it. Here are a few of the options you'll find among our collection:
- Fixed and tilting wall mounts - Easy and affordable, these simple brackets are ideal for hanging plasma and LCD TVs. Fixed wall mounts hang your flat screen tight and flush to the wall, while tilt mounts leave a little room for angling downward.
- Articulating arm mounts - These flexible applications are ideal for corner walls and other tricky mounting locations. A folding, extending, and pivoting arm between the screen and wall gives you plenty of flexibility for adjusting your view.
- Ceiling mounts - Popular in retail and commercial settings, a ceiling mount easily offers the widest sweep of screen visibility to a busy room. TV ceiling mounts are often employed for digital signage applications, in large stadiums, and convention centers. They require professional and permanent installation.
- TV floor stands - We offer both commercial and residential stands for flat panel TVs. Shop for attractive wood and glass furniture, or select a more utilitarian stand for educational, retail, and trade show purposes. We offer portable stands as well as mobile carts.
