Portrait signage on the Cisco Edge 340
This article provides instructions to configure your Edge 340 media player for portrait signs, via the Cisco Web GUI (graphical user interface) or via a script.
In order to achieve a full orientation of the sign and the device’s display orientation, you need to change the orientation of the device with the Orientation Switching script via SSH. This script changes the orientation for the Browser Engine and the Video Engine and updates the Cisco Web GUI.
Setting the Orientation via the Cisco Web GUI
Please follow the instructions below to set the orientation via the Cisco Web Graphical User Interface:
Type in the IP address of the device in a web browser.
Login to the Web GUI for the Edge 340.
Select Resolution under the System menu on the left pane.
Click the Rotation drop-down menu and select the desired rotation.
Click OK on the confirmation message.
The device will automatically reboot and apply the setting change.
Running the Orientation Switching script via SSH
Please follow the instructions below to set the orientation using the switchorientation.sh script via SSH:
Use the SSH command to remote login securely into the device:
# ssh root@(device IP address)
Navigate to /apps/nexus2:
# cd /apps/nexus2/
Run ./switchorientation.sh [portrait/landscape] [0/90/180/270]:
# ./switchorientation.sh portrait 90
Use 90 to rotate the sign to the right, or 270 to rotate to the left, and be sure to match the rotation settings on the device Web GUI.
The device will reboot and switch the orientation.
