When TV wall mounts were first introduced, they were generally quite basic, which is understandable seeing as these devices were a new invention.
In this blog post and the second part, we will be considering how brackets have evolved over time, as well as how there are now mounting solutions for all manner of hardware which is considered part of any home cinema setup.
Before TV wall brackets came onto the scene, most people still had large and bulky CRT TV sets, with flat screen plasma technology being reserved for those with deeper pockets.
Indeed, the first few plasma televisions released onto the market were quite big themselves and sturdy brackets made for these models were fixed in place to take the load.
Nowadays, as TVs are getting even slimmer and more easily mountable by the year, you can get LED LCD TVs as well as plasmas, with so much choice available for consumers to buy.
TV wall brackets have had to adapt and manufacturers considered the needs of the home cinema enthusiast, but offering more in the way of adjustability options. As well as wanting to mount their brand new TV onto the wall, they also wanted to be able to move it according to their seating position – which might change from time-to-time.
Some people wanted to go a step further and purchase TV wall brackets which are motorised and can be adjusted using remote control. So now there are a number of motorised brackets to select from too.
