There's no way to tell from that image what it is other than a glowy bit on the hull.
Even though the Kelvin is an older design that the Enterprise, she too has that window-like bit
And it's still impossible to tell from those images what it is other than a glowy panel.

Does anyone know what the bar code scanners are for?

There are two on the helm and two on the "hostess station"?
For scanning peoples credit cards for the drinks, of course.
I think it's part of a fire suppression system.

Is it me or does this bridge seem awfully cluttered?

Nope.
The spotlights for the registry are a little lower.
There might be others lower down, but that band of light is not a window. Its the wrong shape, in the wrong place, and there are others like it to the port and starboard.
Yes, and there are big doors on the sides of the bridge that seem to lead to other rooms.

Perhaps I'm as wrong as Dale was with his 'clouds', but I'm pretty sure that it is a window.

Maybe, but if it is the bridge is sunken into the lower dome, the light coming through is the wrong color, and too bright - even for the gleaming white STIV/Apple Store bridge.

Janeway: 'Must be the polarization-output of the window.' (or something like that.

I looked at the trailer again just now... at the point were they arrive at Vulcan, within the debris-field, we, again, can see the front of the saucer...
Yeah, it's a window.

Re: Bridge Layout guess

I don't see the connection. Why wouldn't a viewscreen show the front of the saucer?

I mean, yeah, sometimes showing the front of the saucer might obscure various interesting things. But usually, it would not, as our heroes in all the shows seem perfectly satisfied with a view of things that they would get from a regular window.

So, watching Insurrection, would you say that the bridge is aft-facing, with a window on the back? Cause they can see the hull through it.

While both of you have a point, I still stand by my observation

We alse still have those reflections on the glass:




And notice the bright light (from the Sun) coming in from the right side of the frame - through adjacent room's window? Quite probably.

Nope, still don't see anything about a window.

Let's get Matt to ask Orci about it.
