Ultracategories are categories with extra structure, called an ultrastructure (see Lurie, Sec 1.3). For an ultracategory, $\mathcal{A}$, its ultrastructure assigns to a set of objects of $\mathcal{A}$ indexed by a set, $S$, equipped with an ultrafilter, $\mu$, the categorical ultraproduct, $\int_S A_s d \mu$, an object of $\mathcal{A}$.
Ultracategories were introduced in Makkai 87 in order to prove conceptual completeness, but note that Lurie’s definition slightly differs from Makkai’s (Lurie, Warning 1.0.4).
(For a conjecture that ultracategories are a kind of generalized multicategory, see Shulman.)
In (Clementino-Tholen 03), a different concept of ultracategory is introduced as an instance of a generalized multicategory.
