Discreet cleaner plays starring role in Cannes Diary

Discreet have celebrated a successful presence at the Cannes Film Festival with their winning performance in David Lynch’s Cannes Diary.
The company have revealed that David Lynch, President of the Jury for the 2002 Cannes Film Festival, selected their award-winning streaming software, cleaner 5.1, to stream his daily 'davidlynch.com Cannes Diary'.
The series featured David’s impressions of Cannes from the Festival and is available for viewing on www.davidlynch.com
“I don’t feel like being discreet, I feel like telling the whole world about these great products,” said Mr Lynch.
cleaner, the professional streaming media mastering solution, provided the ideal tool for davidlynch.com. Eric Bassett, Managing Consultant for davidlynch.com, said: "Being under the gun to post daily content for our Cannes Diary series demands mission critical solutions. That's why davidlynch.com uses cleaner 5.1, the industry standard for providing the best streaming media content."
David Lynch's daily diary captured his inside view of the Cannes Film Festival experience – the behind-the-scenes story, the revelry, the making of the Cannes Diary and more.
davidlynch.com had an on-site team to produce and post the daily series to the website. The team included a DV cameraman, an editor with his NLE, and the webmaster who received the edited content for encoding with cleaner software before uploading the content online.
The team's computers were networked together to facilitate the production process and video coverage of the production was added constantly throughout the festival in May. The original series was broadcast daily from May 14–28 on www.davidlynch.com. davidlynch.com provides Internet-exclusive content to its audience, with original series available on its members section.
