Some wall mounts will hold the TV flush to the wall, while a tilt mount will allow the TV to be tilted downward, for example, for a truer viewing angle. An articulating arm will bring the TV out from the wall, as often seen in hospitals or waiting rooms. A VESA wall mount might also come with a special tool that is required to unlock the TV from the wall mount before removal to discourage theft.
When a VESA standard includes more than one hole pattern, each variation is further delineated by differentiating trailing enumerators. Since the average consumer isn’t expected to know the arcane naming scheme or measure the distance between holes, vendors of VESA wall mount brackets make it easy by letting the consumer know which models a specific bracket will fit. This is typically based on the weight of the display, as VESA hole patterns change based on this factor.
Before you buy a VESA wall mount you need to have properly understood your needs because a VESA wall mount can help you achieve them. For example, are you likely to need to rearrange furniture in the future, or are you buying a VESA wall mount for an alcove or corner. Yes to either of these questions may influence the kind of VESA wall mount that you need to buy. If the answer was yes to either of these questions it may be worth considering a cantilever VESA wall mount or titling VESA wall mount.
