Hi shell08, and welcome to TSG.

Did you mean HDMI?

the cctcv has a male connector
Exactly what kind (BNC, RCA, F, D-Sub) of a connector is it? Are you referring to a connector on the camera itself, or are you referring to an output on some kind of CCTV controller/DVR box?

It may help us to help you if your told us the exact manufacturer's names and model numbers of the monitor and whatever you wish to attach to the monitor.

A BNC connector output suggests the CCTV box outputs a composite analog video signal, but we won't know for sure until we know the make and model number of the CCTV box.

If it is a composite video output, you could use a Composite to HDMI video converter box. The link below is to an example of one such converter box sold by Amazon. It is not a recommendation of any particular model number, manufacturer or seller. This particular device requires a USB power source. If you wished to operate it from AC mains, you would require a suitable AC mains operated USB output charger, such as might be used to recharge a tablet computer or smartphone.

Are your cameras feeding video into the RJ45 ports on the nv-3213a and you want to connect your monitor to one of the BNC connectors on the nv-3213a?

If so, you will need an RCA to HDMI Converter/Upscaler such as the one in my earlier post.

You will need an HDMI cable to connect the converter's output to your monitor.

You will also need a BNC to RCA coaxial cable to connect the converter input to one of the BNC jacks on the nv-3213a. Here is an example of a 6 foot long one:

This set-up will allow your monitor to view the output from any one camera. You will need to disconnect and reconnect the BNC end of the cable to different BNC jacks on the nv-3213a to view other cameras one at a time.
