It means it’s shot with special high-resolution cameras meant to capture enough fine details that it can be shown on a huge screen and still have a very sharp image. Today there are high end digital cameras that are imax-approved but not that long ago imax was always (and still often is) shot on 70mm film cameras where the film moves sideways so the 70mm film width forms the shorter (vertical) dimension of each frame. Each imax frame was like 6x the size of a regular 35mm film frame and IMAX film cameras capture more detail than even the imax digital cameras.
