Yep, that's about right. It does use VIC and RAT for output though, so 
display is the same as the AG.

Depends on the number of participants and also level of activity. Video 
streams are very variable. For what it's worth, an hour long meeting 
between 2 participants with 2 cameras each runs about 600MB. So for 
small discussions you might be able to get it on a CD-R. You can also 
edit recordings for length and remove individual streams as well if 
you're trying to reduce its size.

As above, the display is taken care of by VIC so whatever the config of 
the system (be it small windows or large) you can make it work.
