Camera output as surface for plane?

Is it possible to assign the color of a material the output of a camera. example.. I have a stage with giant LCD screens and I would like the LCD screens to be showing camera's 2 & 3 instead of the output of the main camera.. camera 1

Interesting.

As far as I know, this is not possible within Maya (i.e. in realtime). However, you can certainly render out image sequences of the other cameras' views, then apply those sequences as textures to your plane when you do the final main-camera render.

I was trying to do exactly the same thing a couple weeks ago but didn't find a way. I don't think it's possible, but it would be useful.
