Most homes have at least one TV and it is increasingly either LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) or a plasma screen TV. With the increasing craze for larger screens, need for a safe and high quality TV bracket is assuming more importance.
A major attraction of a flat screen, apart from its thinness, is flexibility of wall mounting, saving space and enhancing room décor. Those who buy flat screen TVs need to select the right kind of bracket to mount the screen securely on to the wall. A bracket that conforms to VESA standard guarantees total safety for the consumer.
VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) is an international corporation that provides standards for electronics. FDMI, the Flat Display Mounting Interface, also called VESA Mounting Interface Standard (MIS) is laid down for the mounting of flat panel monitors and televisions. VESA standard TV brackets, when mounted correctly as per manufacturer’s guidelines, will ensure the safety of the TV and the consumer.
The type of VESA standard TV bracket will depend on the make and size of your television and the place where it will be mounted. Seek advice from a shop, or search websites which sell brackets and mounts and also provide a list of suitable brackets for a specific TV model.
