AdWords advertisers will be able to display video ads across the AdSense content network. The video ads, in a click-to-play video format so not to be too obtrustive to the user experience, will be available as both site targeted ads as well as on a keyword basis. However, it does not seem to be an ad format that publishers will be able to opt-out of.
