The headers of the images used in the JHelioviewer project have a significant amount of uncompressed data (in XML format) that are used to
describe their content. These data generate an initial delay (latency) in interactive remote browsing sessions, specially noticeable when
sequences of images are displayed (video mode). For this reason, in this project a lossless compression and/or parallel transmission of this part of the headers is proposed in order to minimize the latency of the system.
This project could be combined with other sub-projects oriented to improve the experience of the JHelioviewer user.
