I am trying to figure out how to bring two video camera feeds into my 27" iMac, purchased this year.

A little set up... I will be using Telestream's Wirecast or Ustream's Producer Pro to live stream some events. I have two Canon XHA1s miniDV cameras with firewire 400 outputs. The iMac only has one firewire input. It appears there is no such thing as a reliable firewire-to-USB converter, which is unfortunate because the streaming software works well with USB inputs, of which the iMac has plenty.

So, how can I get the two firewire feeds into the iMac? I appreciate your help!
