Ulead offers an overview of video formats and the Web. They explain AVI thus:

AVI stands for Audio Video Interleave. Created by Microsoft, AVI is one of the most commonly used video formats. In addition to being able to save live action video and audio in the AVI format, you can export animations from Ulead products such as GIF animator and Cool 3D as AVI files. The advantage to exporting animation in the AVI format (versus the GIF format) is that AVI can handle 16.7 million colors, and has more advanced transparency support as well. A variation of the AVI format, called DV AVI, is used to create Digital Video that can be transferred losslessly (without loss of quality) between computers and camcorders.
