Sony TV's – wall mounting systems

I don't really follow the world of TVs but I'm looking to buy a new Sony 46 inch-ish to replace my old 40 inch Sony in the bedroom. But my old TV is mounted to a articulated arm which has a Vesa mount. It looks to me like these mounts have vanished so is it possible to mount 1 of the more recent sets using a Vesa attachment or is it only possible to flush mount them to a wall?

VESA is still the usual way of wall mounting, even TVs that have a custom bracket still tend to have VESA mounting points.

I can't vouch for every TV but every flat screen TV I've bought has them and the vast majority of TV reviews mention them.

VESA is just a vague standard for the spacing of the fixing holes, it's not even a standard really as the VESA standard defines various measurements so they can still vary massively from TV to TV

Most brackets I've used have multiple holes to suit the different hole patterns on different TVs

There's a good article here detailing the various sizes you can get

It's definitely possible, I've had a 46" LG mounted on an articulated VESA bracket.

The question is then whether the specific set matches the specific mount.
