Trying to choose the right TV stand for your next event? In this article, we’ll look at a truss stand, dual pole stand, and a TV stand with wheels to help you decide which one is right for you.
Quick Answer: Truss and dual pole TV stands both allow you to mount multiple TVs; it comes down to which one best suits the aesthetic of your event. If you need to move your TV frequently, a TV stand on wheels is the best way to go.
Truss TV Stand
A truss stand offers a highly flexible TV mounting solution. You can extend the truss to almost any height and mount multiple TVs to the same truss. This allows you to stack TVs above one another or even mount multiple TVs on opposite sides of the truss.
Dual Pole TV Stand
The dual pole TV stand offers similar functionality to the truss stand but with a different look. You can still mount multiple TVs to either side of the stand, but you can’t build towers as is possible with truss.
TV Stand On Wheels
As the name suggests, this TV stand is on wheels making it super easy to move around your event space as required. The downside to this stand is that it can only accommodate 1 TV.
TV Stand Heights
All of the TV stands mentioned above are height adjustable, offering at least 1’ of movement both up and down.
All of these stands can hold our 49”, 60”, and 80” TVs comfortably. Check out our linked article to discover which size TV would be best for your event.
What TV Stand Would Suit My Event?
- Truss stand
This is quite a stylized option that works well at events with a more industrial look and feel, like tech conferences and anime conventions.
- Dual pole stand
The dual pole stand is a lot more elegant with a much cleaner look overall. It fits in well at high-end or design-led events such as weddings.
- Stand on wheels
This works particularly well at events that have regular set changes, with TVs coming and going from the stage. One person can comfortably move the TV and stand.
TV Cable Runs
The dual pole and wheeled TV stand both have hollow tubes, allowing you to run all cables discreetly to the floor.
In contrast, the truss stand has no internal channels for cables, so it’s not quite as seamless. That said, you can do a good job of hiding them by running cables down the back of the truss support and taping them in place with white electrical tape.
