Assuming you're using Premiere Elements 13 on a Windows computer.
Attach your camcorder via USB to your computer.
Use Premiere Elements Add Media/From Flip or Camera to import the video from the camcorder to your computer.
Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately because of the nature of our recording process, UDB is not a viable option. To keep the quality we need for broadcast, we had to purchase a Blackmagic capture card as our import source. That's the only way to get the stream for our switcher source.

If the camcorder saves to a memory card, then importing over a USB connection is the way you get the video, Robert.
Streaming capture is a process usually limited to tape-based video. In fact, the latest version of Premiere Elements doesn't even support it.
Meantime note that BlackMagic cams usually store their video in an Apple ProRes format. This is a professional format and Premiere Elements may not be able to work with it. I'd do an experiment with some raw footage before I invested too much into this workflow.
You may be better all around going with a professional video editing program like Premiere Pro CC. Premiere Elements is designed pretty much to work with consumer formats like AVCHD and MP4.
Thank you again. Our setup is completely studio based. No cameras store data. Mostly remote cameras, with some manual controlled cameras. Everything goes through a 16 input switcher, all in HD. The live mixed signal is sent live to the capture card in the PC. Again, I can capture through the card with a high Rez file, then import into premiere elements. Just trying to import live into premiere elements without having the extra step.

Premiere Elements is technically not designed to record live video.
The only feature close to that is under Add Media/From Webcam or WDM. If this feature works with your configuration, you may be able to use it to capture a live stream of video. (As you can see, from it's name, it's designed to primarily capture webcam video.)
If this feature doesn't interface with your system, there's no other way to set the program up to capture live video with this program. As I said, this is a professional feature and Premiere Elements is a consumer program designed primarily for editing low-end consumer video.
I was going to bring mention of the Add Media/Webcam or WDM choice that survived in Premiere Elements 13/13.1, but decided against it once I saw the setup that you already had in place.
But, you might be interested in lisao thread with regard to trying to use the Premiere Elements 13/13.1 Add Media/Webcam or WDM for the live streaming project.
Note that the 1920 x 1080 source was not presenting as 1920 x 1080 rather as 720 x 480 in these webcam maneuvers. Also see Warren's comments.
