    Firewire Cards for Z440?

    We are about to buy a HP Z440.  Do I need to add a firewire card to HP Z440 for deck interface with Sony HVR-M25AU?  This deck only has iLinc/Firewire for control and video.  I need to know if the HP Z440 has any Firewire ports, if not what Firewire cards are qualified for the Z440 and Media Composer 8?

    Thanks

    Re: Firewire Cards for Z440?

    Ive read theat document prior but still have the same question.  I was wondering if anyone was successful in installing a firewire card in the Z440 and in what slot.  Also what brand/model is qualified?  I'm assuming that the Z440 does not come with a built-in Firewire port/bus.

     

    Any other info on how to connect the Sony HVR-M25AU is greatly appreciated.

    No built-in FW port as per specs. See the doc Marianna linked to for further clarification.
