The effect is available and easy to set up if you use WordPress themes with a build in full width slider.

Content sliders of different types and sizes are used intensively on website front pages to showcase services, products and important content. By designing a slider to have full width and make it scale to fit the browser window, the slider area attracts more focus and often it simply looks great.
