Figure 3: Camera technology, once integrated into the line, can be leveraged in a phased approach. This allows real-time usage of the system while considerations around (for example) GMP video data storage and potential regulatory concerns are addressed.
Figure 4: Video data storage can be devolved to a secondary phase if compliant data storage is a concern.
