Cinema commercials in 5.1 - 82dB leq(m)

Hello All

I am currently mixing a cinema commercial and have to do this according to the 82 dB leq(m) standard, which is new territory for me.
I’m doing the whole thing in Nuendo 11, where luckily with the SuperVison there is a tool that shows me leq, in addition I also have the waves WLM meter that does the same.

Do I understand it correctly that the 82db leq refers to the average loudness, so to speak, so the value Thank you !

Yes. Measured from start to end of commercial.

It’s always amusing to listen to trailers and hear all the goofy ways mixers play with highly exaggerated dynamics and frequencies to get a punishingly loud trailer that still meets the leq(m) requirement.
