Hello, I just have a simple question about terminology related to arcade machines. What is the "art" on the flat or slightly slanted part of a typical machine that contains the buttons and joystick(s) called? Not the side art or marquee, but the part with a simple design that fits around the buttons. 

 

Thanks!

I think that is generally called the "control panel"

Thanks! It would be great if anyone else could mention anything else they generally see it called because obviously there are various names for everything.

Commonly referred to as the CPO or Control Panel Overlay.

Yes, he asked specifically about the "art"... I missed that part. :)
