Moodbidri, Jul 23: Over all, entertainment industry is a vast playing field with increasing volume. There is a need for change in thinking, work way and technology innovation for the future growth. One of the key requirements of the entertainment industry is lighting. From live, recorded broadcasting to theatre and music festivals, lighting is one of the most important aspect.
Similar to other technologies, there is a constant demand for dynamic and ever changing professional lighting solutions. But this comes with a literal cost, as professional lighting gets less and less affordable.

This is where Leksa Lighting plays a key role in quenching the thirst of innovation demanding customer base with affordability.
From Humble Beginnings
Established in 2017, in the outskirts of Mangaluru, India, Leksa started with very little staff but had infinitely higher courage and enthusiasm. In just 4 years, Leksa has become one of the leading manufacturer and supplier of professional lighting in South East Asia with dominating the lighting scene not just in broadcasting fields such as TV studio, film and fiction shoot industries but also in auditorium, architectural and many other specialised lighting verticals.

In such a short time, Leksa has executed projects all over India and also has spread its presence across over 17 countries. Leksa has one of the largest manufacturing facilities in specialised lighting located near Moodbidri with over 100 employees. Such an astounding growth in the short span of 4 years shows the direction where this company is headed and there is no stopping any time soon.
The mission of Leksa Lighting is in the very name of it. ‘LE’ in LEKSA stands for ‘Lighting Excellence’. It is also the company’s tagline and indicates Leksa’s goal to be a global leader in professional lighting technology. Leading this mission with the dedicated R&D staff, the company brings Leksa’s trademark modern and efficient technology combining with affordability. As a part of this goal, the company strives to be independent with completely in-house design and development of products which reduces the dependency on external resources and gets a better control of the quality and standards of our products. This drive to be independent and self-reliant, is in-line with India’s ‘Make in India’ initiative and also helps in achieving company’s goals of aiding the growth of local economy, ultimately fuelling national prosperity.
The second part of the name ‘KSA’ stands for ‘knowledge shared adequately’, bolstering thier mission to educate and share the knowledge to the masses, especially to the younger generation. Leksa has conducted many training sessions on the importance of lighting and the current technology of lighting for many, including the film fraternity and to the students of numerous film and engineering institutes.
