All About the VESA Pattern
The VESA pattern is a simple solution for mounting - or adding peripherals to - common electronics that are used in everyday life. Using predefined VESA hole patterns on your displays you can hang a large TV up on your wall, attach your monitor to a desk arm, and more. Let’s review some details about the different VESA standards out there, and see what’s right for you!
VESA - Video Electronics Standard Association
FDMI - Flat Display Mounting Interface
MIS - Mounting Interface Standard
To find the VESA Mounting Interface Standard that corresponds with your display, measure the horizontal and vertical distance of the outermost VESA holes. Measure from the center of the holes and convert the units to millimeters (see basic conversion chart below). The first number should be the horizontal value and the second should be the vertical value.
When searching for VESA-compatible mounts and accessories, the standards will be named with the prefixes FDMI and/or MIS and a letter associated with the size. More weight is supported as the distance between holes increases. See the chart below for the current VESA standards and their attributes (FDMI MIS-A is open for future sizing).
|VESA Standard||Hole Pattern (mm)||Screen Size||Display Weight||Screw Size|
|FDMI MIS-B||50 x 20||4" - 7.9"||≤ 4.4 lbs||M4 x 6 mm|

|FDMI MIS-D||100 x 50,
100 x 100
