Interfacing with lots of ADCs using LVDS

I need to process up to 24 ADCs, each running at 5-10MSPS. Each ADC needs to have 12 bit resolution, and the ADCs are spread over 3 PCBs. The AD9220ARS would do as a good economical 12bit ADC, but interconnecting 24 of them looks ugly. Quad or octal devices might be a way forward, but has anyone tried using LVDS interfaces to get the sheer number of interconnects down?
