In the pop-up dialog you may enter a Vendor Name, fixture type, its width and height (in px), the Start ID and an Offset. An offset of 3 (by default) will create 3 DMX channels (RGB or CMY) per pixel.

DMX Fixture / Video Tile

If you wish to create a fixture that should be controlled via DMX or Art-Net, tick the check box "DMX Fixture".
If you wish to create a fixture that should be controlled via DVI, HDMI, DP, etc., tick the check box "Video Tile".

DMX Protocol

Choose the DMX protocol: Art-Net, KiNet V1 or KiNet V2.

With the protocol KiNet V2 the options ChromASIC and SYNC will be activated and are selectable.

Color Mode

With the radio buttons RGB, CMY, RGBW and R you can setup the color mode according to your fixture. Note that the offset should be set accordingly, except for dimmer-only fixtures. In that case please use RGB Mode and Offset=1.
