Guide, tips & tricks about the VESA standard

Which VESA standards are available?

The VESA Standards are divided into VESA classifications, the so-called MIS (Mounting Interface Standard). The most common are VESA MIS-D, VESA MIS-E and VESA MIS-F. The classifications VESA MIS-A, VESA MIS-B and VESA MIS-C also exist, but are rarely represented in practice. VESA MIS-B is suitable for monitors up to a weight of 2kg, VESA MIS-C for max. 4.5kg. The classification makes it possible to differentiate more in terms of diagonal screen size and maximum weight.

The classifications - VESA MIS D / MIS-E / MIS-F

Computer screens and smaller televisions usually have the VESA-MIS-D interface. With a higher screen size / inch size of the monitor / television and their higher weight, the VESA switches to VESA MIS-E or MIS-F.

With a VESA of 200x200 mostly M6 screws instead of M4 screws are used; even for larger screens M8 screws or more than four threaded holes are used. For square VESA measures usually only one number is given, e.g. VESA 75, VESA 100, VESA 200, VESA 300, VESA 400. This stands for 75x75, 100x100, 200x200, 300x300, 400x400. If the dimensions are different, the information is given as horizontal x vertical distance between the threaded holes, e.g. VESA 200x100, 300x200, 400x200, 400x300, 600x200, 600x400, 700x400, 800x400, 800x600, 1000x800.

If your display is VESA compliant, it can easily be attached to the appropriate monitor mount. When selecting the monitor, pay attention to the VESA compatibility for easy mounting. If you do not know which VESA standard your TV has, you can easily determine this. If the TV is not compatible with VESA, it can still be attached to the desired bracket by using VESA Adapters. Furthermore, you have to pay attention to other aspects beside the VESA standard when choosing your monitor mount - find out which one.
