Default Mixing for Music Video / TV?

I've been doing an album with a band and they just finished shooting a video. I need to give them a video mix tonight. (The record is going to be mastered in 2 weeks but this mix will not) Any tips on what I can do TODAY that will help it transition to TV etc? I guess I can listen on my TV. Anything else? Should I roll off low end? Are the certain frequency bands that are problems for TV speakers that I should watch for?

Never done this before...

Roll off at 50 Hz or so.

Slam the living daylights out of it with a Waves L2 or L3. (audio for video usually has a dynamic range of about 3 db...)

That's basically it. Ask them at how you should deliver it. Use a calibration tone.

at work i use: 1 Khz at -18 dbfs
as maximum peaklevel, keep it at -9 dbfs. Yes..thats eating 9dB of headroom, but thats how they work.

Write on teh DAT or CD:

Tone: 1 Khz, -18 dBfs PPM
Macximum program level = -9 dBfs

Also the best thing is to check your mix on an actual TV....

Definately listen through TV, which you, and Bastiaan have already covered, also, i generally do a much more "Mono compatable" mix for television, mixing main parts that have been Hard Panned on the record to 10'oclock / 2 o'clock in the mix spectrum.

Check for, and deal with any mono phasing that might be going on, and effects levels in mono.
