Essential plugins needed for audio post mixing (TV) Noise Reduction & Restoration Plugins
Old 1st April 2010
Here for the gear

A Bundle like Waves Gold is a good starting point to give you a few toys to play with. It has a couple of reverbs, de-esser, M/S decode and balance tools. compressor and EQ. the L1 maximizer is good.

A Convolution reverb is a must if you are doing any sound design stuff. it is great to be able to put a voice in the right environment / washing machine/ flower pot. TL Space if you can afford it, it quite often comes bundled with pro tools packages. Waves do the IR-1 and IR-L. SIR is a VST convolution tool that is free if you want the non-delay compensated version. (VST ONLY)

You May also need pitch and stretch tools. IMO nothing touches the Izotope algorithms. If you are PT then X-form is the direction to take.

Noise reduction. Ask them to employ a sound recordist rather than a runner with a mic.
Or go for the Izotope collection. really good value.

PPmulator (UK delivery)

Other plugins which have proved their worth are Waves speed. for tape wow/record stop general sound design

Also very useful are X-crackle and X-Click. good for removing the obvious but also good for regenerating distorted audio. Z-noise is worth looking at although I would still go for Izotope.
Good Luck!

I also guess that you will also want to get a hold of some broadcast spec sheet
