In general, most IP cameras or video servers that output MJPEG or still image JPEG format over HTTP should work.
To use MJPEG or JPEG cameras, the use of PC Access (p/n 1105W or 1106W) or Automation Studio (p/n - 1126) is required. OmniTouch touchscreens and mobile apps have built-in support for Axis and Panasonic products that output MJPEG and JPEG formats.
As for other IP cameras, most have a built-in web server which uses an ActiveX control or Java applet that is automatically downloaded when you access the web server by entering the IP address of the camera in your browser. Generally, the web server is accessed when you simply enter the IP address of the camera.
OmniTouch touchscreens and mobile apps do not interact with the web server of the IP camera, but rather are able to interface directly with the raw MJPEG or JPEG video stream provided by most MJPEG and JPEG IP cameras.
Generally, to access the stream there is an http query string that is part of the URL which instructs the camera to stream the MJPEG or JPEG images. To use a MJPEG or JPEG camera, you will need to find out what the query string is and use it as part of the camera setup in PC Access or Automation Studio. You can typically find this information on the web site for the camera manufacturer or in an API or Protocol document provided by the manufacturer. If the camera provides an MJPEG stream, the "Camera Type" must be configured as an MJPEG device. If the camera only provides still frame JPEG images, the "Camera Type" must be configured as a JPEG device.
