With USB, there are several different standard protocols for different classes of device. We have a webcam driver that meets the standard protocol. That is what we're referring to as a 'standard video class' driver.
If a webcam can be used in Windows or Linux without installing a custom driver, then it is compliant with the standard video class and should work fine in xPC Target. However, since we haven't tested with ALL available cameras, it is still possible that there are some functions that don't quite work with some camera. We want to hear of any such cases.
For higher performance, we have a driver for the Neon CLB CameraLink board from BitFlow. CameraLink is a high performance digital camera interface.
We have not added a GiGE Vision driver at this time.
