The current implementation of desktop sharing (version 0.61) divides the 
presenter's screen into a grid of tiles and only sends to the server the 
changed tiles.

However, there is still a significant amount of bandwidth needed for sending 
the tiles and receiving the video stream.

Investigate encoding the tiles using the Adobe screen codec, which is 
designed for broadcasting of screen content.
