To display your digital signage, you need a good mount that will aesthetically secure it in place. The mount should also be functional enough to allow some changes in the display’s position. There are a few types of mounts for digital signage to choose from, each having its own advantages and disadvantages. Learn about them in this write-up and see which ones closely match your marketing and digital signage needs.
Flat mounts are the most common and basic type of mount used for digital signage. They let you display your screen in a fixed flat position against a wall, that is why it is also called a flush or fixed mount. It does not tilt or change position and usually allows only about an inch or two clearance from the wall, which requires you to detach the screen to unplug cables. It offers clean, minimalist appeal though it doesn’t have the flexibility to adjust position or avoid glare.
As the name implies, this type of bracket tilts, allowing you to adjust the display’s vertical angle. The installation bracket has a pivot in the centre. Similar to a seesaw, the mount moves up or down. The tilting position provides better viewing from a lower or higher position. It also works best to avoid glare. Expect it to be a bit more costly than basic flat mounts, but you can benefit from convenience because changing cables is easier.
Full Motion Mounts
Full motion mounts offer various ranges of motion, thus the name. It lets you adjust horizontally, vertically or forward and back, making it easier to change cables or access ports. The most important advantage is that it allows you to display in a window or corner without the need for a floor stand. It has a moveable arm that connects to the wall, making it possible to position the screen away from the wall and move in the horizontal axis. However, this range of motion comes with a cost, for this is the most expensive type of mount. It is also a little more complicated to install.
Ceiling mounts attach to a ceiling, which is best for freeing up floor space. Some brackets allow vertical tilting and 360-degree horizontal rotation. It also offers the flexibility to display in corners, centre of a room, or a window. Some are even designed to hold multiple screens back-to-back or side-to-side.
