The Mews is adding an 8 terrabyte Avid Unity to its shared storage capabilities as it looks to major on long-form HD, short-form and visual effects work.

The Soho post company – formed by the merger of DGP and Rainbow Post – already has a Terrablock and an Editshare.

The new kit will be provided by reseller Root6.

At the same time, The Mews is also adding a second Smoke system running Smoke 2010.

A new Smoke op will be appointed shortly.

Meanwhile, a proposed deal to takeover an un-named audio facilities company has fallen through.

The Mews managing director Gareth Mullaney said “I’ve decided to step back from [that]. Whilst the company has lots of potential - and a good amount of work going forward - I think there is too much of a difference in the work they do and they work we could realistically do. I’ve decided to concentrate on what are better known for and try to expand on that.”

The Mews, based on Greek Street in Soho, recently completed full post on The Bible: A History (pictured).
