    $\begingroup$ At my local big box store one can readily find wireless home security camera sets, often with up to 8 cameras or more, and a regular monitor. Includes ability to select one or all cameras on the display. $\endgroup$ – Jon Custer Nov 4 '20 at 14:32

Three possibilities come to mind:

(1) Purchase a scale with a digital output e.g, https://www.arlynscales.com/digital-indicator/industrial-scales-with-analog-and-digital-outputs/ , send it to your computer, and output it to a monitor (depending on the scale's output format, it may be possible to send it directly from the scale to a monitor)

(2) Point a USB webcam towards the scale's digital readout, plug that into to your computer, and then display on a monitor.

(3) Same as no. 2, but use a digital camcorder that has a digital output that can be displayed directly on a monitor, without the need for a computer.

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks. Same above solutions are applicable also to Television set ? $\endgroup$ – Prashant Akerkar Nov 4 '20 at 8:10
