Arlo has just announced announcedArlo Ultra, a new system of high-end wireless security cameras. Featuring a new 4K image sensor equipped with an HDR image processor, Netgear Arlo Ultra capable of capturing and playing 4K videos immediately available to the user. A function that not only gives greater clarity and precision to videos, but that allows you to enlarge video clips to obtain essential information, such as plaques, worn clothing and other useful details that have occurred during potentially suspicious activities.
