To take this a little further, best practice is to feed the broadcast chain with an output that can be metered at the mixer. If you then send tone at 0db to the broadcast chain, and set whatever input levels are available on the chain to 0db, you can now monitor what the broacast chain is receiving on your mixer meters.

Perhaps there is someone who can tell you what level the broadcast chain likes best (peaks to -6, 0, or +3db?). Or, establish this by trial and error. Then, set your output at the mixer so that peaks come to that level.

If you continue to have trouble with this, the a-v contractor who installed the systems can straighten things out real fast.
