Win/Mac: ColorChecker Passport Introduced for Digital Photography Raw Workflows

I found an article that was posted on September 17th saying that the new hardware provides Adobe users with  integration of DNG profiling. “X- Rite’s Color Checker Passport allows digital photographers working in a Raw work flow to capture accurate color, enhance images and maintain color control from capture to edit. The goal is to reduce image processing time and improve quality control, with the package providing such benefits as camera calibration for Raw shooters, providing greater capability to calibrate and correct color; accurate color that provides a consistent foundation for creative interpretation; minimized color differences between cameras and lenses; automatic adaption for mixed lighting; color balance matches across different scenes; dual-illuminant profiles that take into account two different light sources in a single profile.” I was a photography major and I think its  software sounds really helpful and useful. Obviously I haven’t used it yet, but I want to!

“X-Rite emphasizes the ability of the software to create dual-illuminant DNG profiles, which takes into account two different light sources to create a single profile that can be applied to a wider variety of lighting conditions.” The Camera Calibration application and Lightroom plugin allow photographers to build DNG profiles for many programs including Lightroom, Photoshop, Photoshop Elements and Bridge. ColorChecker Passport. They are said to also provide benefits for those who shoot in a JPEG workflow, such as ensuring that files are captured correctly from the onset.

    So is this a plugin that is available for the adobe suite? I think this plugin would be very useful for professional photographers and enthusiasts alike. When is this going to be available? For how much? Is there a link to the article? I would also like to see images that have been processed with this software in order to see its true application and determine whether or not the average user will see a difference.
