stand, light stand

While lights may find themselves mounted on a camera or Grid, Hand-held, or clamped virtually anywhere, commonly they are supported, elevated, and positioned by stands.

Stands are extremely valuable when you need to add a source quickly - like at one minute to air. - E. Carlton Winckler
