The adapter plate is an Innovative component which allows the arm to interface with the monitor. The most common adapter plate is a VESA adapter, which is included with most Innovative mounting products. See also: `channels`, `forearm`, `mount`, `tilter`, `VESA`.
In Innovative `2-link` articulating gas arms, the channels are the 2 interlocking components which enclose the gas cylinder. Innovative`s unique arm design allows the channels to move against one another in a scissors motion as the monitor is raised and lowered, keeping the screen at a constant angle.

In Innovative `2-link` articulating gas arms, the forearm is the component closest to the monitor (it is the forearm relative to the elbow of the mount). See also: `adapter plate`, `channels`, `mount`, `tilter`.
See `VESA` for more information.
In general, a mount is any product which allows the user to position a device in a particular location. In common Innovative usage, the mount is the component which affixes the arm to a surface. For example, desk mount, wall mount, ceiling mount. See also: `adapter plate`, `channels`, `forearm`, `tilter`.
Return Authorization (also written as `RMA`) -- provides clearance for the return of an item to the point of purchase.
Return Authorization (also written as `R/A`) -- provides clearance for the return of an item to the point of purchase.
The tilter is the Innovative arm mechanism which allows the monitor to pivot, turn, nod and rotate. See also: `adapter plate`, `channels`, `forearm`, `mount`, `tilter`.
The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) is an industry organization which promotes standards in display technologies. VESA FPMI (Flat Panel Mounting Interface) is a standard which enables consistent attachment of displays to mounting mechanisms such as Innovative`s arms. This standard calls for a square hole patter of either 75mm or 100mm on the back of the monitor. Innovative`s VESA-compatible products include mounting plates which work with VESA monitors. Most modern LCD monitors follow the VESA standard, making it a simple task to mount your monitor.
