I hope you’ve had a chance to test your new MacPro by now and am hopeful you can answer a question related to the Thunderbolt 2 ports. I know that there are 6 ports on the new MacPro, but my understanding is that there are 3 busses, each sharing 2 ports. Does this mean that the new MacPros max out with 3 camera inputs, one on each port? I know with Firewire, each camera needed its own bus, but I don’t know if that is the case with Thunderbolt 2 technology. Can you please let me know the max number of camera inputs I can expect if I were to use a new MacPro?
I have the same question re: the latest Retina MacBook Pros. There are two Thunderbolt 2 ports. Are they on the same bus? What is the maximum cameras I can stream into the Retina MacBook Pro?
