What is the VESA size of my TV?
VESA size refers to the distance in millimeters between the four mounting holes found at the back of a monitor or TV.
Common VESA sizes found on TVs and monitors are 200 x 200 mm, 400 x 400 mm and 600 x 400 mm for bigger screens such as 70 or 84 inches.
If you want to use a wall mount or stand with your screen, you’ll need to know the VESA size of your display.
Since VESA sizes vary from monitor to monitor, it’s important to confirm your screen’s specific measurements and compare them with the specifications of the stand or mount that you’d like to use.
This guide describes how to find the VESA size of your TV or monitor and how to mount a VESA pattern screen.
What does VESA mean?
VESA is an acronym for the Video Electronics Standards Association, an organization that sets technical standards for its members. All major TV and TV mount manufacturers have adopted the standards defined by VESA to ensure compatibility of different products on the market.
How do I know what size VESA my TV is?
You can easily determine your TV’s VESA size by following the below steps:
- At the back of your monitor or TV, identify the four VESA mounting hole patterns in a square or rectangular shape. In the example below, the four mounting holes are labelled a, b, c and d.
- Using a tape measure or ruler, determine the horizontal VESA size by measuring the distance between the two top holes. In our example below, the distance between the two top holes a and b is 200 milimeters. This is the first number of our screen’s VESA size.
- Next, determine the second VESA number by measuring the vertical distance between the mounting holes. In our below example, the second VESA measurement is also 200 mm. This is the second number of our screen’s VESA size.
Combining the two values gives you the VESA size of your screen. For our example,the screen has a VESA size of 200 x 200 mm. That’s it, you’re done.
Remember the VESA size is always quoted with the horizontal value first followed by the vertical value.
Be sure to convert all measurements into millimeters and to measure from the center of each hole for the most accurate measurement.
In case you can’t measure the values yourself, you can always find the VESA size in the product manual or on the manufacturer’s website.
How do you mount a screen with VESA hole patterns:
The VESA size is important especially when choosing a wall mount or stand to use with your screen. Using the steps outlined above, you can easily determine the VESA size of your display and choose the right mount for your needs.
