We present the first visible-spectrum snapshot imaging spectro-polarimeter based on a Computed Tomographic Imaging Spectrometer (CTIS). Improvements to our calibration methods have provided advances in the CTIS spectral resolution and in noise suppression which obstructed previous attempts to construct such an instrument. The resulting device is capable of 75×75 spatial resolution, 1 nm spectral resolution across the visible spectrum (400 nm-720 nm), at video frame rates. The instrument is also capable of complete Stokes vector polarimetry at a reduced spectral resolution (~10 nm).
