The good thing about this is that it manages to explain from head to tail how the fraud works -- not very clearly from the testimony but all the pieces are there for the first time.
Basically, the machines are set up to send large numbers of ballots into the adjudication process. We've seen examples of about 68% (Antrim County in Michigan, one county in Nevada) and one in GA where 93% were adjudicated (above). Maybe this is done via differences in ballot printing by region, or the use of Sharpie pens that produce bleed-through. The point is, the machines scan large numbers of ballots that they cannot read automatically. These ballots must be adjudicated by humans.
Those ballot images, after being adjudicated, are deleted and replaced with newly generated ballot images from the adjudication process. Possibly the adjudicated ballots are also printed, so paper copies would exist -- in the case of absentee ballots, paper copies that had never been folded for mailing or handled by human hands; the marks would be made by the printing device. The adjudication process itself can be done remotely over the internet with no audit logs, and the machines can be hacked into with relative ease.
The "traditional" fraud by mail-in voting, ballot harvesting, and so on still happens. But it's less necessary once the machines have sent enough ballots to adjudication. The adjudication process itself controls the results.
