Abstract: We have developed a Java-based image browser system for the Subaru telescope. The system will be used for a quick inspection of the archived images from remote institutes and of the observed images at a telescope operation room. The browser system supports functions to show spectral traces, statistics, etc., as well as an image itself to help users to easily evaluate the image quality. The browser system has been developed to reduce network traffic between a server and clients. The images, which are compressed for rapid transfer, are generated with care for each observational instrument in order to minimize the loss of the information.
