KB01904 - How to manually rotate VTP if not auto-rotating

SKUs:  AT-VTP-550,  AT-VTP-800, AT-VSP-800

Summary:  If the VTP is not rotating to the desired screen orientation, this can be done manually to lock into the desired orientation (i.e. Portrait or Landscape)


  • Download and install Platform Tools for your OS (Windows, Mac, or Linux)
  • Ensure your computer and the Velocity Touch Panel are on the same network

Note: The instructions below are for Windows only.


2.Connect with ADB

  • In a terminal window (Command Prompt on Windows), navigate to the Platform Tools folder you have extracted:

    • Example: cd C:\adb\platform-tools
      • Hint: You can right-click the folder location and click copy to make this faster
      • mceclip0.png
  • Type the following command:
    • adb.exe connect [touch panel IP address]:5555
  • Example:
    • adb.exe connect

 3.Changing the orientation

  • Wait for VTP to connect
  • Once connected, you will want to send the command to disable the auto rotate:
adb shell content insert --uri content://settings/system --bind name:s:accelerometer_rotation --bind value:i:0
  • After this you will want to force the panel to the orientation you need
    • portrait modes
adb shell content insert --uri content://settings/system --bind name:s:user_rotation --bind value:i:0

landscape modes

adb shell content insert --uri content://settings/system --bind name:s:user_rotation --bind value:i:3



  • The VTP will rotate a few seconds after the command is sent and will stay in that orientation
  • If you are having issues with the device saying disconnected or failed attempts you will want to make sure you are not on any wifi or different VLAN/network segment from the touch panel.  


  • Once completed, type the following command:
    • adb.exe disconnect
  • Close terminal window/Command Prompt
