That’s the GrandTech Camera Codec.

A word of warning about the codec: it’s very unstable. I stumbled upon the virtualdub page and read a rant from avery lee who gave it the Lame Codec of the Week award
http://www.virtualdub.org/oldnews
(see the entry for 10/13/2003)

If you REALLY want to get the codec try this. I wasn’t able to find other installation packages that contain it, but maybe someone else can.
http://www.vivitar.com/CustService/driverindex.html#V10
Get the twain driver for the cam. Install it. Don’t reboot. Instead search for gtcodec.dll (in windows xp, make sure you do advanced search and include hidden and system files/folders). Once you find it copy it to your desktop. Now go to your start menu and uninstall the program you just installed. Don’t reboot. Once the uninstall is done copy the gtcodec.dll file from your desktop to your windows/system32 (windows xp) winnt/system32 (windows 2000) windows/system (windows me/98/95) folder.
if you use windows 95, 98 or me go to your windows folder and open your system.ini file. Under the [driver32] section add this line
VIDC.GTCC=gtcodec.dll
if you use windows 2000 or xp go to your start menu, run, and type regedit. Navigate to the key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows NT/CurrentVersion/Drivers32
make sure you click on drivers32 on the left so it’s highlighted. go to edit - new - string value. name it VIDC.GTCC and double click it and modify its value to gtcodec.dll
voila! To check you’ve done things right run virtualdub and click video and choose compression. you should see a grand tech camera codec listed.
