They have brackets which allow you to hang your flat screen TV from a central pole - very similar to attaching the TV to a wall.
This type of stand enables you to 'hang' your TV in a similar way to using a TV wall mount. But, it allows much more flexibility when it comes to perfectly positioning the screen - or even moving it completely.
The stand may just allow for hanging the TV, or there are models which also include shelving underneath to store all your AV components too. One of the best TV stand mounts I have seen is the TransDeco TD600ES TV Stand pictured below.
The vast majority of flat panel TV's will have a VESA fitting. This refers to the distance between the mounting holes on the back of the TV.
Some TV mount stands have an extra small shelf attached to the central pole which is intended to be used for a centre speaker. This can be particularly useful as, in some setups, placing a centre speaker can sometimes be a problem.
In the early days of flat panel televisions, the vast majority of TV units were glass TV stands.
