Binarization, as an early stage of image processing, is quite crucial in terms of reducing redundant information from the image. A grayscale image can be segmented in two groups as object and background by using a binarization technique. In other words, binarization reduces the space of pixel intensities to {0, 1} from a broader range of values [0, 255] in case of 8-bit grayscale images.
