ST. PAUL, MN—April 26, 2004 (PDF)
Ergotron, Inc. is pleased to announce that it is the first official recipient of the VESA Mounting Compliance Logo. The VESA® Flat Display Mounting Interface (FDMI™) Standard defines mounting interfaces and hole patterns for LCD monitors, plasma displays and other flat panel devices. All of Ergotron’s Flat Panel Mounting Solutions are designed to fit this Standard to make monitor attachment quick and easy and to dramatically lower the total cost of ownership for users of Flat Display technology..
Ergotron’s relationship with the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) has a rich history. Ergotron's founder and Chairman, Harry Sweere, holder of 35 U.S. patents on various types of computer mounting equipment, was the workgroup leader for the FDMI Standard. In addition, he authored the original Flat Panel Monitor Physical Mounting Interface (FPMPMI™) Standard in 1997, which has been implemented by the majority of FPM manufacturers worldwide.
"We are proud of our long association with the VESA organization. The standard mounting interfaces have had a major impact in allowing flat displays to be utilized in many industries and applications unheard of just a few years ago,” said Harry Sweere, founder, Chairman and Chief Scientist of Ergotron, Inc.
