Usually you would use kind of capture card there are many options of both internal cards or external boxes from AJA Kona, Blackmagic or Matrox.

Depending on your budget and the Mac you use one of these will be suitable.

However since the 7020 only has a composite video output (I think) then a cheaper option would be something like this:

http://www.amazon.com/Hardware-ADVC-55-d-Converter-Ntsc/dp/B000HGVZG0

which will take analogue video and turn it into a firewire output which you can then easily capture without the need of a more sophisticated card.

I am pretty sure that the i/o Express has not got the option for an analogue composite video input. It only supports SDI in and out and Component/Composite out. (but not in)

So there is no way of using that with your Umatic machine.

You need something that has an analogue composite input. Which you simply attach via a standard BNC cable to the video output of the Umatic.
Obviously you need to connect up the audio as well.

There was no RS422 remote option on the Umatic either so you will have to use 'capture now" as there will not be any deck remote control options.

Probably the Canopus video/firewire box is the cheapest option as long as you are happy with DV res - should be OK for Umatic.

Or you could hire an IO HD which does have composite in and would allow you more flexibilty on your capture codec but that may not prove to be easy or cost effective depending on where you are.
