Yeah, the need to position yourself close enough to the speaker to hear and where you can also see the screen seems like it's painstakingly recreating downsides of the real world which shouldn't affect online presentations.
I've used https://www.gather.town/ (not FOSS) for a work event before, which is a similar idea with a low-res 2D world. It also uses the idea that you can see & hear people near to you, but you can have a special square which allows anyone standing there to address the whole group, like a PA system. It worked pretty well, but even so, I think it only makes sense if you're planning to do things like breakout groups, not just presentations.

Sorry, as far as I know, there was no recording. Phil, please let me know if I'm wrong about that.
