Netflix Preset in new Loudness Meter
There's a bit more to the Netflix delivery spec. besides a -27 LKFS (I) Loudness target. Based on meter's lack of necessary descriptors it appears Dolby's Speech Gating Ref. Code (re: BS-1770-1) has yet to be added. Is this in the works?

?? I'm aware of the spec. The issue is the meter provides a ghost "Netflix" preset. Where are the Integrated Dial and Dial LRA descriptors? Plus - properly coded meters allow the operator to display "Dialog Percentage" relative to surrounding mix assets. 15% is the anchor threshold. In essence the meter's "Netflix" preset sets the Integrated Loudness target to -27 LKFS. Nothing more.

Must conform to Netflix loudness spec (-27db LKFS +/- 2 LU 1770-1 dialog-gated) Peaks should generally not exceed -2dBFS true-peak. To achieve this, we recommend setting true-peak limiters on all beds and objects at -2.3 or lower. Loudness and peaks should be measured via a 5.1 rerender.
