Hight of TV

Determining the ideal height for your flat screen mounting isn’t as simple a proposition as you might think. To discern the ideal height for mounting, you’ll need to understand several different aspects of the TV itself, including its size, the viewing distance, eye level height and the viewing angle.

Size of the TV

This is self-explanatory and represents the viewing area of the TV. Do you have a 32” TV? A 42”? 55”? Knowing the size of your TV will help you to determine the mounting. Remember, when mounting the TV, you’re not judging from floor to bottom or top, but floor to the center of the TV. Also, remember that your TV size is going to represent the diagonal viewing area. Thus, you’ll want to use a tape measure to figure out how far up and over the exact center of the screen is.

Viewing Distance of TV

The ideal viewing distance is also based on the size of the television. The calculation for this is your TV size, divided by 0.55. As a quick reference, for a 42” television, the optimal viewing distance is 76 inches away. For a 55”, you’ll want to be 100” away. The optimal viewing for 65” TVs is 118”, and for 70” televisions, you’ll ideally want to be 127” away.

Eye Level from Floor and Viewing Angle

Your eye level is calculated, not standing, but sitting where you’ll be watching the TV. Measure the distance from the floor to your eyes to find out how high you’ll be sitting. In regards to viewing angle, per the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers, you’ll want the TV to be mounted for a viewing angle of not more than 30 degrees. Most people, however, casually sit between 10 to 15 degrees reclined. As a rule, a 42” television should be mounted about 56 inches from floor to TV center, a 55” TV should be around 61 inches, a 65” TV should be around 65 inches’ floor to center, and a 70” television should be mounted about 67 inches to the center of the screen. Of course, professional mounting services are a great way to get it done right the first time. If you’re looking for a mounting package that will be secure and allow for the most flexibility, in angling and height setting, we can help.
