After making the correct decision to go interactive in your booth with one of our media displays, your next move is picking a compatible monitor. You’re probably wondering what all of the terms mean, don't fret, let us walk you through the main points you need to get it right! You can make the setup process at your show a lot easier just by determining the mount pattern, screw size, and weight of your monitor (LCD, LED LCD, TV, Flat Panel, etc.) ahead of time. Manuals, manufacturer websites, or online electronic stores often have your monitor specs readily available if you have your model number or name.
Most monitors accept standard machine screws M4, M6, or M8. M indicates metric sizing, and the number corresponds to the outer diameter of the screw. Rough approximation in inches is 1/8”, 1/4”, and 1/3”.
Weights of monitors, particularly newer models, are typically well within the monitor mount weight limits.
Please note: weight limits on exhibit monitor mounts refers to limits with the exhibit completely set-up in a configuration designed to support monitors.
Understanding VESA Mount Patterns
VESA mount is a family of standards defined by the Video Electronics Standards Association for mounting flat panel displays, computer monitors, TVs, and other displays to stands or wall mounts. Most sizes of VESA mount have four screw-holes arranged in a square of the mount, with matching tapped holes on the device.
Referred to as the VESA mount pattern, these are the distances between the screw holes on the back of the monitor. VESA mount patterns are given in width x height in millimeters. Our monitor mount works with the following VESA mount patterns:
Now that you have the basic understanding of monitor mount specs, you'll be able to more easily navigate purchasing the correct tv for your booth display or the correct monitor mount for your existing monitor.
