Hi, I wasn't too sure of where to post this, since it's not a device-specific question, but I hope you guys can help me out.

I need to setup a wireless security system that uses a CCD camera, but instead of having to buy a display monitor, I'm wondering if I can use an AV to HDMI/USB adapter to stream the video feed on my Nexus 7 with some sort of 3rd party video player app.

Anybody know if this can be done?

The device can't be used as a display like that, but there are several IP camera apps on the market if you want to go that route. Good luck!
