Just as with displays, there are a lot of devices offering the possibility to use wall mounting according to the VESA FDIM (*) standard in the area of LCD TVs as well.
VESA MIS-D 75 and 100 are also called VESA75 and VESA100. And the number 100 in the term is indicating the distance between the screws in this regard. VESA100 means the distance between screws measures 100 x 100 mm on the side of the LCD display or the LCD TV. So a suitable wall mounting has to be compliant with the VESA100 standard, otherwise it won't be able to be mounted on the device.
The hole center distance is being measured as shown in the picture
There are the following VESA FDMI standards:
* VESA MIS-D 75 – 75 x 75 mm hole center distance
* VESA MIS-D 100 – 100 x 100 mm hole center distance
* VESA MIS-E – 100 x 200 mm hole center distance
* VESA MIS-F – 200 x 200 mm, 400 x 400 mm, 600 x 200 mm,
600 x 400 mm or 800 x 400 mm hole center distance
The various VESA MIS standards do not only differ in distance between the screws but also in the maximum load bearing capacity which the respective wall mounting was designed for.
Not all manufacturers comply with the FDMI standards specified by the VESA. Proprietary wall mountings that not compliant with the VESA FDIM standard are only compatible with those LCD TVs device of the manufacturer's own brand, indeed, often even only with a single model of the manufacturer. It is not possible to use VESA wall mounting for such devices.
* VESA FDMI standard is short for Video Electronics Standard Association Flat Display Mounting Interface Standard. VESA is a board that many manufacturers are represented in and pursues to establish manufacturer spanning standards in the areas graphic cards, monitors and displays.
