How can I display the selected scene name?

Among other things I use Live as a click track for songs in a set. I use a MIDI controller to scroll through scenes which are labeled with the song title and tempo.

I'd like to move the laptop running to a position further away but I still need to see which scene is selected before I launch the scene. Is there a way to display the scene name somewhere else?

My first thought is an iPhone app running TouchOSC or something similar — not sure if they have this ability or if they are strictly controllers. Maybe Max for Live has something creative built in.

I could also program or label a controller to the scenes manually but that's a last resort.

Any ideas?

    I sometimes use TouchOSC on my ipad, and all the clips and tracks are displayed just like you see them in Live.
    So that might be an option.
