Split-flap displays were once the focal point in airports and train stations around the world — the clicking sound of their revolving displays conjuring holiday memories in anyone who remembers them. Although they were — and still are — an ideal way to display constantly updated information to crowds of people, with the advent of digital technology, they’ve sadly become a thing of the past.

Fortunately, Split-Flap TV is now using digital technology to revive them. Using regular television screens, we’re bringing back the functionality and beauty of these displays in a convenient and affordable way. With Split-Flap TV, your shop, restaurant, hotel, or office can benefit from the clarity and style of these classic display boards.

Purchase a television or tablet, download an app and you are ready to go.

An Elegant Solution

Do you need to update your customer on the day’s specials? Have you been getting a lot of questions about your Wi-Fi password? Does your staff have trouble keeping up with all the pricing and offer changes during a busy shift? Then it’s time for an elegant solution in a simple package.

With Split-Flap TV, you no longer need to write down all of your information by hand or tape it to the door—and you certainly don’t have to try to fix it when the wind blows it away.

Order a display screen from our website (whatever size screen suits you best) and we’ll prepare it so that it operates, looks, and sounds like a classic split-flap display board (yep, it can sound like one too). Once your screen arrives, just download the Split-Flap TV app and you’re ready to go.

We know that customers love nostalgia—that’s why they keep asking for split-flap displays at every train station. This is your chance to give them what they want in a new, unexpected place.
