Important things to consider when selecting a Kanto wall mount
- The VESA hole pattern on the back of your TV
VESA, stands for Video Electronics Standards Association. This is an organization that develops timely, relevant, open standards for the display and display interface industry, ensuring interoperability and encouraging innovation and market growth. They make sure that TV manufacturers and mount manufacturers develop products that work together. VESA sizes are always measured in metric so a 400 X 400 hole pattern means 400 millimeters by 400 millimeters..
Make sure you check your TV's manual to see what your VESA hole pattern is before you buy any mount.
You'll see which VESA hole patterns all our mounts support at the in the "Specification/Features" section at the bottom of each product page.
- Weight and size of your TV monitor
Weight is actually becoming less of an issue as TV manufacturers produce thinner and lighter TV's. Here at Kanto we are constantly changing our product line up to accommodate these changes. However, if you have an older TV, such as a plasma, then it is going to be fairly heavy so you should check the weight.
On newer TV's the VESA hole pattern on the back of the TV will be a more significant constraint than the size or weight of the TV.
- Mount/TV location
Do you want to place your mount/TV in a corner or above a fireplace? Other possibilities include mounting your TV to a ceiling, desk or pole. Do you want to mount it inside an existing cabinet or on a single stud. All of these are important considerations.
