Blackmagic Design has announced that Seattle based Punch Drunk Productions used a full Blackmagic Design workflow, including URSA Broadcast and ATEM Camera Control Panel, to live stream the dedication of Holland America Line’s newest cruise ship, Nieuw Statendam.

Live streamed from the World Stage Theater onboard Nieuw Statendam while docked at Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the ceremony featured the official dedication of the ship in a longstanding maritime tradition believed to bring good luck and protection to a new vessel and all who sail on it. Speakers included Orlando Ashford, Holland America Line’s president, the captain of Nieuw Statendam, crew members, and Arnold Donald, CEO of Carnival Corporation, which operates Holland America Line along with several other sister cruise brands. The ceremony culminated with the tradition of a bottle of champagne being dropped from the ship onto the bow. The presentation was live streamed to Holland America Line’s website, Facebook page and YouTube Channel, garnering hundreds of thousands of views across the world.

As a live broadcast and multi camera production house, Punch Drunk Productions prides itself on solving unique challenges that can accompany the ever changing world of live events. For Nieuw Statendam’s dedication, Punch Drunk’s founder and creative director Jacob Stone, along with 13 team members, designed a solution to solve three major hurdles, incorporating Blackmagic products for their ease of use, image quality and portability.
