What is this effect called?

when you scroll down you see it scrolls a bit over the slider on the top. I searched the internet for half an hour but could not find how it's called. I think it's a html5 feature.

Hope someone can help me out :)

This effect is called parallax scrolling. And I am not sure if this type of question belongs to UX related community.
