VPCScreen does a pretty good job especially if you have the new SUMOVER UCL
vic installed (e.g. the one that comes with AG 3.1 beta) which has H.261AS
support. With the VPCScreenProducerService set to H261AS, just click on an
Arbitrary Sized window and it will start streaming at that resolution and
the receiving vic will display it at that resolution.

Some of the benefits using VPCScreen is that the latency is fairly low
compared to VNC and SharedPresentation, you can record using AGVCR and it
does multicast.

Another AG application sharing tool you could look at is MAST, see:
