Mark, try to automate the swopping of standards as much as possible.  
We use a change over switcher for changing syncs and black and have 
coders and other gear that auto select the standard according to ref 
supplied.  User configs are also helpful.  This has brought the 
format change over time down to almost as fast as swopping gates and 
setting up.  The colourists can do all this fast without the 
need for engineering assistance.
