HP TouchSmart - TouchSmart PC Review Wall Mount
The HP TouchSmart all-in-one desktop computer brings a new level of interaction to desktop computing that
caters to multiple environments. The ability to mount the HP TouchSmart with a variety of alternate mounting
systems, such as wall mounts, kiosk stands, and zero footprint articulating arms, allows for this innovative
computer to be strategically placed to attract customer usage, and to also correctly position the touch-enabled
interface for a more inviting and comfortable interaction experience for the user.
Creative individuals have posted homemade methods for attaching the HP TouchSmart to VESA compliant
mounting systems, just like any standard LCD monitor display would be mounted. Unfortunately, these methods
do not correctly attach to the back of the HP TouchSmart to properly hold its weight. Also, the modifications made
to the computer ultimately void its warranty by HP.
The HP TouchSmart requires the ability to be mounted in order for the full potential of its touch-enabled
technology to be realized. The wall mount adapter needs to be designed in a way that it would not require any
modifications to be made to the HP TouchSmart for warranty purposes, and also correctly support the weight of
the computer. Iversal Products has developed this solution. The ICWMK-HP23 VESA Mount Adapter and
Complete Wall Mount Kit correctly integrates to both the HP commercial TouchSmart 9100 Business PC and
consumer 600 Series desktop; providing the correct VESA mount interface for these computers to be used with
VESA compliant mounting systems having the 100mm x 100mm mount hole pattern, and also providing the
correct weight support for the computer. If you do not have a VESA compliant mount and simply want to mount a
23" TouchSmart to the wall, the ICWMK-HP23 is a complete wall mounting system having a flush wall mount
bracket included with every kit. For more information, please visit our HP Touchsmart Wall Mount page.
For individuals who may not be familiar with the term "VESA" or "VESA Compliant", VESA stands for "Video
Electronics Standards Association". VESA is an international non-profit corporation, which represents corporate
members worldwide. VESA promotes and develops relevant, open standards for display manufacturers and the
display mounting industry.
VESA standards provide specific guidelines for the mount hole pattern, placement, hardware, and guidelines to
mount display monitors. VESA also sets the standards for the pad or mounting apparatus to be utilized by
equipment manufacturers based on the size of the screen and monitor's weight.
Following VESA standards and guidelines for mounting ensure that the correct components are used to properly
support equipment. Iversal follows these standards and guidelines with every product we develop.
