Currently working sound editorial/design/post on an H2 series. Early on had a DME deliverable kicked back for not being at same level as the Printmaster. Upon review, the level was identical (LKFS), but the DME was not limited, as was the Printmaster.
After getting in contact with the network, it was clear that they wanted all deliverables limited to -10.
I'm curious why? If you reassembled shows for broadcast from limited elements, at some point you risk peaking above your own spec. Why not reassemble and limit on master?
And I do understand how badly our sound is abused by some networks before going to broadcast regardless of their spec.
