To ensure your own safety and that of the monitor, use only the specified
wall-mounting bracket. Please note that wall mounting must be done by a
professional technician.
When the monitor is mounted on a wall it must be possible to access the
connectors at the back. At least 6cm of clearance will be needed between
the monitor and the wall to ensure that there is enough space to insert the
connection cables.
It is important that air should flow freely through the ventilation slots
wherever the monitor is installed.
