For years I’ve been using Firewire to connect video cameras to Macs. But Firewire doesn’t handle HD very well, and fewer and fewer cameras are available with Firewire connections. But HDMI is now common. So adding an HDMI input to your Mac may be the way to go for live video. The Matrox MX02 Mini is one way to do it. It won’t work with non-pro apps like iMovie or iChat. But it does well with broadcast software like Wirecast and pro software like Final Cut Studio. You can get it with a PCIe card for a Mac Pro, or a Express34 card for a high-end MacBook Pro.
