Default Question: Broadcasting Layout and Levels

Hello Guys,

Have you ever received this kind of Request from a client?
For a TV Broadcast.

Audio configuration
Ch1 – Full Mix (Narration, Music, Effects, Interviews); Ch2 – Interviews (Dialogue/VO and
Narration; Ch3 – M&E (Music and Effects); Ch4 – M&E. (Music and Effects).
Tone at -20db.
Audio levels between -12db and -14db.

I had to Reroute and Remix All for a mono Fullmix, which I find really strange.
And The Audio Levels are totally not clear.
It's the average I suspect, He's not asking me to limit all at -12 and to have 2db of dynamic range???

That is a confused spec. If it was me, I'd ask for clarification. If you don't get it, mix to -24LUFS. But the mono mixes on 1+2 are an oddball thing to ask for. And the levels don't make sense unless you were making a screaming hot web mix.

Yeah, Well...
the explanation came back, Nothing cleared though...
(it was funny none the less... )
First mix I made was -20LUFS Peaking at -3 Which I thought was more Then enough.
And for web I'd go for -16LUFS.
But What they're asking here;May be they're flatting it hard, to put in the news paper!
