[ANSWERED] PTZ CPU load on computer?

I'm currently in tech week of a show which will have 3 PTZ cameras. Currently with only 2 in operation the CPU load increases exponentially (I've seen loads as high as 1000%). Typical load with nothing else in a patch besides 2 NDI watchers (for the PTZs) hovers around 300%+. It's not my computer, so currently I don't have specs besides it's a fairly new iMac that should be sufficient, and we've restarted and still the same scenario. My thought is either I'm doing something else that is causing this overload, or that it is standard with NDI and PTZs?
I remember when trying to do a stream in the pandemic I was using NDI as protocol to bring an Izzy feed over to OBS and the loads were just as significant.
I also admit I've never used a PTZ camera before and am unsure if this is the proper way to get the feed into Izzy. Are there other ways? Any suggestions / share of experience would be helpful. Tech is tonight at 6pm EST.

NDI is inherently CPU-hungry. If you can get the video feeds in via an HDMI or SDI capture device you probably won't see such a high load.
