In my experience TV tech guys are often very conservative, and those who are relatively new to digital are scared to death of approaching zero. They\'re happy to keep levels safe and low and let their horrible levelers and brick-wall limiters deal with it.
My advice is to mix hot---but not too hot, because sometimes they\'re doing analog transfers or broadcasts and will never touch their input or output pots. I\'d suggest average levels in the -6dB area, with peaks not over -3dB. Do your own peak limiting with L1 or something you know sounds good, unless you trust the editor you\'re handing off to.
