Default Displaying screen content in other devices

Hello all. I'm working on a Uni research project involving projecting applications on a multi-projector cluster setup.

I was wondering if there is any way to capture the content that is going to the screen, and sending it to other computers via network.

I don't even know if this is possible, but what I was thinking was, if I can somehow capture the feed going to the screen, I could then send the corresponding parts of the image to the cluster node in charge of that part of the display matrix.

Does this make any sense?

The ultimate goal is to be able to run any application on a multi-projector setup.

If anyone knows anything about capturing Xwindows content, I would greatly appreciate it.
