By my knowledge only the UltraStudio Recorder 3G is available, and that one is Thunderbolt 3 which isn't also USB-C.
So if you can get the old version you're in luck, if your 2015 imac is a Thunderbolt 2 model,Thundebolt 1 is also still compatible i understand, but only at the lower speed i guess.
btw..Mini DisplayPort looks also like Thunderbolt 2

Identify the ports on your Mac:
UltraStudio Mini Recorder, Intensity Shuttle, ATEM Mini, Video Assist (mini USB), HyperdeckShuttleHD,Analog to SDI converter, software: Davinci Resolve 15 on Sierra, Resolve 18 on Catalina. (Using Apple OS 32 & 64 bit on different MacBook Pro's
