I cannot seem to find a documentation stating which raster types are supported to use in GMSC 2020. Can someone direct me please?

This is what I found in the 2016 documentation (I doubt there's any change in 2020):
Supported file formats:
Tested by the Product Center:
ECW v3 is supported by GDAL 1.11.1 which is used by GMSC 2016.1
If you check the list of GDAL supported formats ( http://gdal.org/1.11/formats_list.html - Compiled by default), than you will see that GDAL supports a huge number of raster formats.
In addition the GMSC 2016 setup installs the following plugins (see [GMSC_INSTALL]\Program\Gdal\x64\plugins) .
Bathymetry Attributed Grid (.bag)
Oracle Spatial GeoRaster
GMT Compatible netCDF
Hierarchical Data Format Release 5 (HDF5)
Multi-resolution Seamless Image Database
Please note that all these formats will not be tested by the GMSC team and we can't guarantee that any of these formats still work after a version upgrade.
In addition to that, you can use whatever format is supported by GeoMedia / WebMap, in case of usage the WebMap integration feature. By that I mean rasters registered in the GDO Warehouse.

Thank you for your answer Jan. The ECW support is what I was searching for (though not sure why ECWv3 is not used natively and tested, being a proprietary format of Hexagon). But I can't wonder does GMSC 2020 (which came late 2019) supports a higher version of GDAL than 1.1 (which is quite old)? If not, does GMSC 2021 does?

As per the NuGet gallery, the version 1.11.1 was the latest stable version when the GMSC libraries were updated, which happened in later 2016.
Newer GDAL version was released in 2018...
