My name is Kornél Lehőcz. I am originally from Hungary, but I have also lived in South Africa, England, Croatia, and Sweden. I am currently based in Berlin.

I am a programmer coming from a game development background. One of my hobbies for the past 15+ years has been photography. This has inspired me to take an interest in the algorithms used to make the most out of digital camera images.

Scarab Labs is my venture into image processing software development. I started working on a digital camera raw converter in 2006. Two years later I decided to quit my daytime job to work on the software full-time, and released it under the name Scarab Darkroom. Since then the software has grown to over 80.000 lines of code.

I nowadays rely on contract work to make a living.

My areas of expertise include:

  • image processing / computer vision
  • AI, machine learning
  • computer graphics
  • GPU programming
  • performance optimisation

I am available for software R&D projects on-site in Berlin or remote. If your company needs help in one the above areas, feel free to get in touch!

My past clients include ThyssenKrupp, Delphi Automotive, and Carl Zeiss.
