I think he has talked up his "solution" a little too much. I'd just passively monitor the network output of printers to see if they were compromised.

That wouldn't prevent a printer being infected by printing a malicious document.

I agree, it wouldn't. It would probably detect it though and would allow a view to be taken about how many printers are currently compromised. A bit like bug seeding. Sample network traffic from printers to see the scale of the existing problem.
