If this helps any
. Do I have to use a Panasonic wall bracket, or can I use other 3rd party wall mounts?
We recommend you use the optional mounting brackets manufactured by Panasonic. However, if you choose to use another brand of wall bracket, please be sure it will accommodate the position of the mounting bolt holes on the Panasonic Plasma TV (660mm x 320mm for models up to 58", 1075.2mm x 330mm for 65" models), the thread of the screws (M8 type), and support the weight of the display (consult the Operating Instruction manual for your model).
A great number of monitors are compliant with the VESA standard. Manufacturers of monitors have agreed on a industry interface standard, which means a hole pattern on the back of the monitor, screen or display that fits any mounting device whether for VESA wall mounts, desktop or ceiling mounts. The following summarizes VESA standard mounting hole patterns that are used today: For smaller and medium flat panels, LCD monitors and screens from 12" to 22.9" diagonal, and falling in a weight range up to 30.8 lbs (14 kg): 75mm x 75 mm or 100 mm x 100 mm (2.95" x 2.95" or 3.94" x 3.94")
For larger monitors with viewing screen from 23" to 30.9" diagonally, weight range up to 50 lbs: VESA 200mm x 100mm and 200mm x 200mm
For large Plasma screens and LCD TV displays 31" to 90" diagonal, but weights not greater than 250 lbs. there are various hole patterns in 200 mm increments: 400mm x 200mm, or 600mm x 400mm, or 800mm x 400mm
What does the term, VESA, stand for and what is the focus of the VESA mount guidelines? The initials, VESA, stands for Video Electronics Standards Association. This is an international non-profit corporation, which represents more than 300 corporate members worldwide. The corporation promotes and develops timely, relevant, open standards for the display and display interface industry, ensuring interoperability and encouraging innovation and market growth. The standards provide specific guidelines of the mounting hole pattern placement, screw size, and guidelines for the mounting pad or mounting apparatus to be utilized by equipment manufacturers based on a the size of the screen and monitor's weight.
