Sony's 3:1:1 exactly equals Panasonic's 4:2:2 in terms of color space in an absolute sense.

I think the above is incorrect.

Panasonic 480 x720
Sony 480x 1080.

Sony records *more* colour detail for a given picture. 50% more?

I too thought the sampling was "across the board" but it isn't.
In my view Sony haven't pickup on this "sales line" as they will want to spin and hype the SR format as being much better than 3:1:1.
In reality it may well be difficult to tell the two apart on a TV screen.

Getting my 444 armour on....
