Are Most Layer 2 Camera Discovery Tools Using a Common Protocol?

Dozens of manufacturer specific camera finders exist. Simple, lightweight and mostly bulletproof. Apparently they send out a broadcast ethernet frame and then listen back for a response with their OUI in the MAC address. The response contains the IP address of the camera.

Are these all homegrown discovery protocols? Or do they share a common mechanism, like

*.***/****/*****************************" ******="******">**** *****?

****** * ********* **, ** ***** ** ******* ** **** what * ***** ** ******.
