Window numbering differs between switcher families. For example, on Atem Mini Extreme, windows are numbered on a row-by-row basis, starting at upper left. If a quadrant is not split, it gets the number of its upper left mini-window. This is an example of a layout on Atem Mini Extreme:

0 4

1 5

2

8

10 14

11 15

On the non-Extreme Mini switchers, the window layout does not appear to be configurable, and therefore the numbers are allocated on a contiguous basis:

0

1

2

3

4

5

6

7?

8?

9?

Since the windows marked ‘?’ are not configurable on non-Extreme Minis, these numbers are just an educated guess.

Audio VU meters appear to be supported on small and big windows alike, but only on those which show a video input or the Program output. The safe area overlay appears to only work on full-sized Preview.
