Can't see much definition in the video.

I don't see any visible catches but it looks like one side may hinge. Sometimes the metal flange that hold the lens swings up.

Is that a surface mount or recessed fixture ?

That fixture pan should be mounted to ceiling framing. The screws may be under the ballast cover in the center.

Squeeze the center cover and it will come down. The ballast and wires will be there.

I think they are referring to the lens frame minus the lens.
