Capture live vid from HDMI camera into my imac...How?

Hello,I have a CAnnon HV20 with an HDMI output. I am wanting to capture live video into my imac. How do I hook the camera to the computer?
-Can I use just a regular HDMI cable with a thunderbolt adapter?
-Do I need an expensive video conversion box of some type (please say no)? 

I am running a video mixing program called vmix. I have been able to capture the video through the firewire output on the camera into the thunderbolt but the quality is low. I am hoping I can get a higher quality into my computer through the HDMI
Any help is hugely appreciated.
