iPROBE IN DEPTH

Easy Network-Wide Backup, Update and Documentation

Axia iProbe is an intelligent network maintenance and diagnostics suite that consolidates managing, updating, and remotely-controlling your Axia system into one easy-to-use software application.

Axia networked audio devices are managed using a standard Web browser to view, configure, and administer each device. iProbe helps simplify this process by scanning and collecting all the information and presenting it a graphical interface. Along with this convenient central point of control, iProbe gives you powerful system tools like the Organizer, which performs advanced tasks such as gathering Livewire-enabled devices into logical groups for easy management and single-point administration of group settings. iProbe also helps with software version control, making it simple to upload software to single or multiple devices, back up device configuration, and more.

There’s a powerful Auto-Documentation feature that queries and documents configuration settings for every networked Axia device — essential for administering large networks. Auto-Doc gives you the ability to export your Axia system data into an HTML format or text for printing a hard copy of your system configuration, or constructing a web page for future reference. You can also export to a tab- delimited text format for importing into other documents or spreadsheets. Exporting in XML format to other applications is also available.

And of course, there’s a System Backup / Restore function that generates full-system backups which can be used to restore your Axia network from bare metal, should the need arise.

Even with all this power, iProbe is simple to use. An intuitive graphical interface lets you browse a list of similar devices, or click one-at-a-time on individual devices to make inspections or adjustments. You can even listen to individual sources with the integrated iPlay functions, and check on audio levels of any audio source.
