Yes, I think this is what I call screenshot or dump.

In this context, let me mention I found a cool way to
do it for Linux VT/tty/console users. In another
terminal, execute the following zsh function (with the
assumption that Emacs is in /dev/tty1) -

dumpemacs () {
    file=$1.png
    sudo fbgrab -c 1 $file
    sudo chown $USER $file
}

I don't know why you have to do it as superuser and
IIRC it didn't help to 'chmod +s' - also, perhaps the
group should be changed as well - but anyway, the
screenshot looks great - here is a screenshot of me
writing this:
