Mixing for TV networks

In the USA, getting levels right for submission in post has been way behind the rest of the world. I just had a chat with my friend Bouke in Holland who has a neat and inexpensive piece of software you might want to look at for $29 Euros. It's called LoudnessChange (for Mac or PC) and is part of a suite of odd little apps from VideoToolshed. 

VideoToolShed - LoudnessChange

Open LoudnessChange, select a profile (they're different in different parts of Europe and he's just added a Fox profile for the US). Click Analyze to check the file. Click Report to get a second-by-second report of where your audio is over, and with simple overall gain problems, click Render to generate a new file that meets the specs.

If your audio has individual specific problems, Loudness Change will create a time-based file to show you where the problems are and you can fix them manually.

Hes pretty open to thoughts, so if you see the need for something, be in touch.

Anybody using LoudnessChange yet?
