If you do have a large studio with all the bells and whistles or a smaller home version you are still going to have to mount your lights and other equipment somewhere. You may end up mounting equipment on your ceiling. Rail systems that mount in the ceiling are commonly used for holding lighting. They are overhead lighting suspension systems that can be modified or expanded to fulfill your needs. A rail system will let you quickly and easily position your lights while helping reduce the clutter of stands and power cables.
Most systems consist of rails, carriages, telescopic posts, and manual spring/cable assisted or motorized pantographs. If you use a rail system make sure it is strong enough to handle the weight of your equipment. They usually come in kits, so make sure they have everything you need in the kit. Overhead systems are also available to mount your background or curtains on. They are similar to hospital privacy curtain systems. Rail systems generally cost a few thousand dollars.
