Streaming live video into iMovie

I was hoping someone might help me. I have four macs with FireWire ports hooked up to camcorders recording customers running gait as they come into the shop directly into iMovie via FireWire port. Simple set up works fine.
Needed to upgrade one of the machines and got a new mac no FireWire but sales guy tells me it'll work through USB this doesn't appear to be the case another shop told me that USB would be too slow and I should be looking at doing it through the hdmi port?
Any help would be appreciated.

Are the camcorders are miniDV? If so then they need a firewire connection. Does the new Mac have Thunderbolt? I believe you can use a Firewire to Thunderbolt adapter.
