You've probably worked it out by now, but I thought I'd post the answer anyway, for anybody who may come looking in the future......
If you look at the back of the monitor you'll see two screws which can be easily removed. What's not as obvious is the THIRD screw. To get at it you need to remove the top plastic section of the stand; I carefully inserted a blade screwdriver in the groove, then gently twisted it in a few places. There's no need to dismantle the rest of the base.
It was my 12 year-old son's eagle eyes which spotted that third screw. My contribution to this part of his MAME project was figuring out how to get at it.

One can only remove the plastic neck of the stand by removing not only its four visible screws, but also the two screws at the invisible inside of the neck. To get to these, you have to remove the neck together with its metal foot. To do so, you should remove the 4 [four!!] bolts/screws that fix the metal bracket to the frame of the monitor, and then loosen the two screws at the outer left and right of the plastic back of the monitor [to get some room to move], and then slide the metal foot down and out. After removing the neck [and if you wish: also the metal] you should reposition all 4 four!] of its bolts/screws, since these are needed to keep the front and back of the monitor together. Also thighten the 2 screws at the outer left and right.
I opened up an LCD by removing any screws you see on the backside and any that may be hiding under rubber buttons or stickers. Gently pry apart the frame from one side, center. Youll find out that the frame is clipped onto the rear part by integrated clips and youll ba able to see if you need inward pressure on the frame or base to unclip the frame portion. It is a "nervous time" procedure but the plastic is pretty tough and its not doing you any good as it sits, right? The power supply had one fuse and had the inverter intregrated into it. Mine was fine, but an SMT MOSFET component on the driver board was completely blown apart from voltage spike. Salvaged LCD and tossed.
I have looked at the specification for this, and although it does show as being VESA compatible (This is a display standard)
There is no mention of any "wall mounting" capabilities at all, which would lead me to believe that this is not designed to be put on a mount.
also the "Magic Rotation" Technology which is part of this device may rely on it using the proprietory stand, it may well be possible to remove the stand however, but it would require some significant dissasembly as the power connector is on the signal box, and this would need to be seperated from the stand itself.
The mounting bolts look to be hidden behind the round pivot cover on the back, and it may be possible to see if mounting is possible simply by removing this, however I would seek information from the manufacturer about this as removing any of the covers would most likely invalidate your warranty, it is possible that this was missold to you and you should be able to take it back as not being fit for purpose.
It is not initially obvious how to access this insides of the monitor
Unusually, access is only available through the front of the screen. The stand cannot be removed on this model.
You need to pry a screw driver (or two) through the four holes located at the rear base of the monitor and remove the front panel surround. The LCD panel and all electronics can be lifted out after removing four screws.
