Video windows on the display may include multiple labels, and support UMD, OMD, IMD and standalone labels.

They are controlled several ways; via the front panel buttons, a simple preset panel, the Apantac ASCII protocol, via a Control Module with GPI inputs assigned to presets, and the Apantac Director software - a configuration and control application.
