You can adjust the quality of the video using the quality bar, or use some of the comression options

Compression, in the most basic sense, means making things smaller. Rendering uncompressed means the files are as big as they can possibly be. Which is great for retaining the maximun quality, but can be a hassle if you have limited drive space. Its recommended that you keep your files uncompressed if you can, for quality purposes, but obviously this isn't going to work all the time. As Movie Kid 4 mentioned, there are lots of other compression options to choose from if you want smaller files. Quicktime Animation is a good option for keeping very high quality but still reducing file sizes somewhat. The various DV codecs, in both Quicktime and AVI, offer relatively good quality to size ratios.
There are also lots of codecs that offer much, much smaller file sizes. (H.264, various versions of MPEG, etc.) In general, these aren't good options for the editing process, and are designed with final distribution in mind.

Do you mean with "compression options" the "render settings"?
Is there any way to render the movie in "AVI compressed" with the resolution 1440/1080?
Because my Editing-Software dont work with Mov.Files.

I'm sure there is, but I'm not familiar with the ins and outs of AVI. I'll have to leave a more specific answer to someone else.

You can choose your AVI codec when rendering. Make sure you're using the latest version.
Alternatively, switch to Quicktime in the Render settings and use the Animation codec that Axeman mentioned.
