If you_ve recently purchased a larg
e screen television, you_ve probabl
y considered mounting it on the wal
l. After all, that_s the most appea
ling feature of a large screen tele
vision, its small spatial footprint
. VESA mounting brackets refer to t
he pattern of holes in the back of
the television, and the spacing bet
ween them in millimeters. VESA 75 h
as the holes mounted 75 millimeters
  apart, VESA 100 has them 100 milli
meters apart and VESA 200 has them
200 millimeters apart. By supportin
g the weight at these points, the t
elevision can be stably mounted to
most walls.

To mount your television, you_ll ne
ed to know which standard it suppor
ts. The most common for LCD monitor
s and small televisions is VESA 75.
 Medium sized televisions use VESA
100 mounts, and large screen sets u
se VESA 200 or VESA 250 (rarely).

A mounting bracket is screwed into
these holes, and then, much the sam
e way a picture hanger is used to h
ang a picture on a wall, used to mo
unt your television to the wall wit
h studs. Having your mounting brack
et properly installed is important.
 You need to leave at least 16 mm b
etween the back of the television a
nd the wall for proper air circulat
ion, lest the light element in the
back of your television burn out. V
ESA-compliant brackets do this, and
 many television sets come with the
m, or come separately as part of th
e standard kit.

More important, you want a bonded i
nstallation service to do this for
you _ they carry insurance in case
the worst happens and the televisio
n is dropped or the wall is damaged
, and VESA compliant televisions ma
ke their job easier. A full install
ation can be done in an hour or two
, and the small amount of extra mon
ey is well spent when considering t
he price of a high end television s
et! Plus, installers can give you g
ood advice on where to position the
  television in the room.
So, be sure to look at the back of
your television_s box for the VESA
size, and talk to a professional in
staller.
