Will this capture device connect my panasonic nv gs15 camcorder to my macbook air (18 months old)

I have a panasonic digital video recorder, uses those small tape cassettes and I want to transfer from the camera to my macbook air which is about 18 months old, but regularly updated.

The macbook air does not have a firewire port do I need one?

Thanks for any help
